The Coalition of Civil Society and Human Rights Activists (CCHRA) in collaboration with the Development Assistance Coordinating Office (DACO) Friday ended a conference on the PRSP draft report 2006 at the YMCA hall, Fort Street in Freetown.
The theme was “let the people know the status and achievements of the PRSP”.
Giving an overview, CCHRA’s director Charles Mambu said the draft report described the progress made in implementing the PRSP for Sierra Leone covering the period January 2006-December 2006.
He said the objective of the coalition of civil society and human rights, DACO and partners was to create wider citizens’ knowledge on the implementation status and achievements of the PRSP.
Mr Mambu also said the conference would give the opportunity to stakeholders to comment and make further preparations for the forthcoming engagements on issues highlighted in the PRSP report. He further explained the results in the report which dealt with the views of the people, making reference to the consultative meeting where donors pledged $864million to support good governance, peace, security, food, jobs, growth and human development.
He remarked that in building strong ownership of the PRSP, groups needed to be included and in changing the way government did business, there should be local level PRSP participation.
The conference attracted participants from civil society groups, local councils and the ministry of development.
