This report was prepared for the Special Program of Assistance for Africa (SPA) with the close collaboration of several members of its Poverty and Social Policy Working Group (PSPWG), in particular Margreet Moolhuijzen (The Netherlands), Ingrid Lofstrom-Berg and Dag Ehrenpreis (Sweden), Andy Norton (U.K.), Curt Grimm (U.S.), and Sean Conlin and Ame Strom (E.U.). It reflects the outcome of informal consultations with key partners in Africa, notably ECA, in connection with its 40th Anniversary Conference on Women in the African Economy, held in April 1998. It also reflects discussions with government officials and civil society organizations in Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Ghana, and at the Regional consultative meeting with African NGOs held in Bamako, Mali, in September 1998.
