Background:

 

 

 

            Ministry of Finance and UNDP Pakistan has signed an agreement for the initiation of a Strengthening PRS Monitoring Project (2008-2012). The objective of the Project is to strengthen institutional capacities for results-based monitoring and evaluation of poverty reduction strategies at Federal and Provincial levels.

 

 

 

Building institutional & human capacities in Government setup is one of the main concentrations of the project deliverables. This broader determinant is tracked down to build the gender responsive budgeting capacities of the Govt. Departments.

 

 

 

Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has adopted a vibrant developmental agenda along with bringing in the best public sector practices in order to remain competitive. Among others, the adoption of Output Based Budgeting (OBB)/Medium Term Budgetary Framework (MTBF) approach towards budget formulation for linking its spending plan to policy objectives while taking into account the available/expected resources to the GoKP over the medium term is a worth-mentioning effort.

 

 

 

The Govt. of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa after developing the basic framework went a step ahead in the fiscal year 2010-2011 by introducing the OBB/MTBF in its three major departments of Health, Education and Social Welfare and in 2011-2012 nine more departments have been shifted on OBB/MTBF.

·         Imparting three trainings of 3 Day’s each

 

·         Submitting Training Report with policy inputs if any
