    Abstract

    Un des objectifs du processus des Stratégies de Réduction de la Pauvreté était de s′assurer que les ressources d′aide au développement seraient utilisées pour produire des résultats concrets et mesurables. La participation des groupes de société civile à la création, gestion et au suivi des Stratégies de Réduction de la Pauvreté devait aider, pensait-on, à atteindre cet objectif: les acteurs des sociétés civiles devaient responsabiliser les gouvernements quant au développement et à la mise en place de stratégies d′aide aux plus pauvres. Cet article cherche à déterminer si la structure formelle du processus des Stratégies de Réduction de la Pauvreté en Bolivie, au Honduras et au Nicaragua a permis d′institutionnaliser une telle forme de ‘responsabilité sociale’. Les processus mis en place dans chacun de ces pays étaient de natures différentes, et différents types d′organisations participatives s′y sont formées, mais il y a plusieurs aspects communs aux trois cas. En particulier, les acteurs de la société civile ont utilisé le processus pour engager un dialogue politique avec les représentants gouvernementaux (et dans certains cas les bailleurs) mais se sont montrés relativement peu enclins à participer au suivi de la mise en place des stratégies ou à évaluer l′efficacité des programmes en termes de développement.
