The TA is designed to strengthen strategy and policy analyses, understanding, discussion and formulation, and thereby advance the pro-poor policy agenda and the development of capacity for the same. It will focus on the endemic constraints to improving public and private sector productivity through (i) participatory local formulation of policies and institutions that work to reduce poverty, and (ii) the local formulation of strategies that can address the lack of acceptance of reform. While solutions will be different for each Pacific DMC, and approaches to these solutions also will have to be tailored to each country's circumstance, the common nature of the constraints to improved productivity and poverty reduction justifies a regional approach.
