Part 8: Risks

8.1 The work must be seen as being complementary to other work done in the public expenditure arena. The emphasis must be placed in advocating employment enhancing investment as a means to reduce poverty so as to underline the value added provided by the project that does not want to compete with either poverty analysis nor pure public investment reviews.

8.2 An important element of the broad strategy of the project is the establishment of a network of semi-independent national constituency or advocacy group, which requires the cooperation of a wide variety of institutions and interest groups at the national level. There is a risk that such cooperation may not be forthcoming from all the institutions The policies designed by such advocacy group may not be fully taken into account by governments in recasting national strategies and programmes for promoting poverty reducing employment.
