Incorporate the potentials of economic development sectors like tourism, housing, industries, private sector development and natural resources for their significance in elevating poverty in the province.
Review the Millennium Development Goals and to identify relationship between MDGs and provincial PRSP indicators leading to implementation of MDGs at provincial level.
Incorporating environment and gender in PRSP as a cross cutting theme that clearly demonstrates the interdependency of both sectors with poverty in the over all context of livelihood improvement as well as establishing linkage between the root cause of poverty, natural resource management, and the role of women in the existing natural resource management practices.
Indicate the missing links between the national and provincial PRSP and capture the impact of Mid Term Development Framework 2005-10 and also to devise a mechanism for linking them.
