Description

In 2000, the IMF and World Bank agreed to work together to carry out Poverty and Social Impact Analysis (PSIA) of major macroeconomic and structural policies in PRSP countries. Guidelines for PRGF and PRSC supported programmes state that the associated documentation will include ex-ante analysis that considers how poor people are likely to be affected by these reform programmes and, when necessary, show the steps that have been taken to mitigate adverse effects and enhance positive ones.In May 2001, DFID and a Working Group of the Joint Implementation Committee of the World Bank and IMF agreed to pilot PSIA in a number of countries, under two separate initiatives, and to bring together the results at a joint Workshop in October 2002.
