National Reform Programme

Under the Europe 2020 Strategy, an EU target to reduce poverty by 20 million by 2020 was adopted. Member states have to report on the target and related actions in the National Reform Programme (NRP).


The NRP is also the reporting mechanism for the Country Specific Recommendations (CSR). In 2014, Ireland received a CSR on tackling low work intensity and to address the poverty risk of children through tapered withdrawal of benefits and supplementary payments upon return to employment.
