    schema:reviewBody ""Since the inception of the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Initiative, the story of the design and implementation of poverty alleviation strategies has largely been told through the filters of development partners and the Bretton Woods Institutions. Poverty Reduction Strategies in Action examines the efforts in Ghana to reduce poverty and initiate changes that the country believes are essential to ensure a prosperous future for its citizens in the twenty-first century. It chronicles the achievements, pitfalls, and looming challenges of a government, its people, and its external partners in fashioning out and implementing antipoverty and pro-growth policies. This edited volume by a group of independent researchers examines Ghana's experience: what was done, how it was done, what was left undone, the lessons learned, and in doing so fills the void in the development literature."--Jacket." ;
