This chapter discusses how to focus public policy on poverty reduction during wartime and in peace. It begins by discussing poverty and income inequality in Angola. It then discusses the need for firm priorities to direct resources to their best uses in poverty reduction. It then examines Angola's social fund, an initiative that has responded to community needs in a way that holds lessons for reforming the state bureaucracy. It concludes by highlighting the relationship between regional inequalities and conflict and the need to rebuild confidence in Angola's institutions.

Keywords:   public policy, poverty reduction, poverty, income inequality, Angola, social fund, inequalities
