Country partnership strategy for the period 2010-2013- the CPS focuses on three development pillars. The three pillars are anchored to: (i) the country's own medium-term framework (MTF); (ii) opportunities for deeper partnerships with other international development partners to pull resources for a meaningful impact on selected national outcomes; (iii) the recommendations of the country assistance strategy (CAS) completion report; and (iv) the lessons from the ongoing projects.

Country Strategy paper and National Indicative Programme 2007-2013. The CSP is in line with the Government of Jamaica's (GoJ) national development strategy which is detailed in the Medium-Term Socio-Economic Policy Framework (MTF). The MTF is based on four pillars: 1) Maintaining macro-economic stability and growth; 2) Ensuring that growth is inclusive and that the poor adequately benefit including enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of social safety nets; 3) Improving governance efficiency and effectiveness in the public sector; and 4) Ensuring sustainable development including stimulating sustainable agriculture and tourism.
