The conference sought to examine the role of parliaments, governments and non-state actors in the poverty reduction process. In particular, the conference looked at ways parliaments, donors, business, and NGOs co-operate and build partnerships to reduce poverty and fight corruption. More specifically, the discussions touched upon the following issues: how Poverty Reduction Strategies (PRSPs) link economic growth and poverty reduction, correlation between Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and PRSP, improvement of capabilities in economic, social, political transparency and security dimensions, and what could be learnt from poverty reduction efforts in Africa in particular.
