This chapter focuses on setting priorities for poverty reduction in the context of Ethiopia and its very limited resources. It begins by discussing the macroeconomic situation and the pattern of growth to identify the resource constraints within which to compare policy options. The pattern of poverty, existing public sector priorities, and patterns of expenditure are also described. It then describes policy areas that are important for poverty alleviation, namely, infrastructure, human capital, and social safety nets and targeting. It also emphasizes the importance of institutions and governance structures.
