Tables 1 and 2 show that the NPRS Priority Action Plan (PAP) for 2006-2008 reflects projects that were identified and scheduled for 2006 but did not have financing in the 2006 PIP for their implementation. Consequently, even the projects planned for the 2006 PIP were not executed owing to the scarcity of resources.
The government must therefore be approached within the framework of international cooperation to raise the financial resources necessary for the planned programs under Pillar III, taking into account the importance of this pillar for poverty reduction and compliance with the first MDG.
d) Monitoring of Pillar III Indicators
In preparing the NPRS, a set of indicators and goals were defined to be attained within the framework of NPRS implementation in São Tomé and Príncipe. As table 4 shows, it was not possible to track the indicators (agriculture and rural development) since the sectors involved could not provide the information.
