M a l i conducts its own Public Expenditure Reviews (PERs), under an agreement

including ex-post review by the Bank and the IMF. To further strengthenthe GoM’s capacity to prepare PERs, the Bank will provide close analytical and technical assistance

throughout FY04 in a framework o f dialogue with other donors. The Bank will also continue support to the development o f sectoral medium-termexpenditure frameworks (MTEF). The last PovertyAssessment was undertakenin 1993; while the work undertaken for the PRSP provided an adequate poverty diagnosis, based on an indicator o f access to basic social services, there was very little data available at the time to allow full discussion o f the dimensions o f poverty (this was indicated inthe JSA as a weakness o f the PRSP). Through a Belgian trust fund, a full poverty assessment i s beingundertaken in order to better understand the determinants and dynamics o f poverty, as well as the impact o f G o M policies and actions

on poverty. InFY06, the Bank will again updatethe analysis o f poverty which will, inter alia, allow for a comprehensiveassessment o f poverty trends since the 2003 analysis.
