The government of each country is supposed to be the leading actor in the PRS process. It decides on the timeframe and design of the PRS process, and is responsible for initiating the participatory process and writing the document, as well as other documents required, such as status and progress reports. However, each country may conduct its PRS process in a different way. Other state institutions such as national parliaments should also participate in the PRS process, as they are the legally voted representatives of their respective country’s citizens.
To find out who is responsible for the PRSP in your country, check the homepage of your government or the World Bank homepage on PRSP:
