A newly drafted national development plan –NDP– or poverty reduction strategy –PRS–, provides opportunities to deploy monitoring systems through online access to dynamic progress reports on priority programs. Paraguay’s NDP sets forth a vision and 72 targets to the year 2030 –sharing 90 percent of the scope of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Also, Paraguay developed Sembrando Oportunidades, a PRS that is going into its fifth year and has garnered useful insights in the use of tracking tools and dashboards to monitor service delivery.
The purpose of this poverty note is to highlight the challenges and lessons learned from the Paraguayan case.
