Description:
 

This particular study should have the following characteristics: a. Adopting the participatory methodology in the project, the study will bring together the findings and recommendations of all other work in the current project. The idea is to make the other policy action studies compatible with the current PRSP context; b. The study will incorporate the findings in a comprehensive manner into the ongoing work on the Pakistan PRSP. There is a need for expanding the focus of the I-PRSP to include more sectors that are of interest to poor people; c. While some of those sectors can be identified as the fisheries, fruits and vegetables etc., determination of a more comprehensive list of sectors is necessary. For this purpose the study will start by identifying these sectors and incorporating them into the PRSP discussion and following policy action; d. Finally, with the help of the above analysis, the study will come up with a comprehensive consideration of the impact of contribution that exports can make to improve employment and reduce poverty in Pakistan and measures to ensure the poor can derive benefit from selected sectors. The focus on the employee side will be on employment generation and skill building and upgrading. On the employer side the focus will be placed on SMEs (as it has been done so far); more specifically value added up gradation in the export sector, and marketing efficiency development for SMEs.
