I asked many of you to bring forward plans and development ideas to present. I am going to release one said plan. The plan is about 140 pages long and has a lot of depth and detail. I need you to focus on non-workable portions of the plan and bring a solution for each area. Bring it back to discussion.  I will email the plan for discussion.

Palestinian Development plan 2007-2010



This Palestinian Reform and Development Plan (PRDP) 200810

is a national plan which sets out the

PNA’s medium term agenda for Palestinian reform and development. It provides a coherent basis for

the allocation of all government resources and reflects the commitment of the PNA to adopt an

integrated policymaking,

planning and budgeting process. The PRDP sets out a comprehensive

framework of goals, objectives, performance targets and the allocation of resources to achieve them.

The PRDP 200810

contains eight chapters which:

  • · Outline the background and approach to the PRDP initiative
  • · Describe key features of the overall political and socioeconomic


  • · Outline the national policy agenda framework on which the PRDP is based
  • · Outline the Medium Term Fiscal Framework (MTFF)
  • · Provide an overview of sector policy priorities, plans and resource allocations
  • · Summarize core budget assumptions and resource allocations in the Medium Term Budget

Framework (MTBF)

  • · Describe the basic foundations for successful implementation of the PRDP
  • · Describe the arrangements for monitoring and evaluating progress in implementing the PRDP

PRDP Approach

The PRDP process is based on generally accepted principles applied in preparing medium term

expenditure frameworks (MTEFs). An MTEF is a government strategic policy and expenditure

framework, through which resources are allocated according to national policy priorities over the


If based on a realistic assessment of available resources, an MTEF can also be a tool

for good public expenditure management to support aggregate fiscal discipline as well as efficient and

effective use of resources in implementation of strategic priorities. It can also provide a basis for

effective dialogue with internal and external development partners.

It will take several years to fully develop and implement an MTEF in line with best practice.

However, the PRDP process is intended to improve transparency, accountability, coordination and

communication, and provide a basis for the introduction of effective performance management

systems in the relatively nearterm.

The process adopted in 2007 is described in the following subsection

and, given the severe time constraints, was subject to some significant limitations. However,

the approach will be refined in future years, based on lessons learned, to allow for an extended, more

consultative analysis and policy formulation phase.
