Planning and Resource Management for Inclusive Growth

What is the project about

Building on the progress achieved since the introduction of the Programme Based Budgeting (PBB), UNDP will support government’s efforts to strengthen the integration of the planning, budgeting and execution framework to improve public sector efficiency and achieve inclusive growth. UNDP’s intervention will focus on four specific areas. First, UNDP will support the formulation of a 10-year Economic and Social Transformation Plan and the 3-year PBB Strategic Plans which will improve strategic allocation of public resources, leading to a higher HDI ranking. Second, UNDP will aim at enhancing internal and external accountability with respect to PBB implementation and public service delivery. Third, UNDP will contribute to strengthen the capacities and competencies of public officers in public finance and public sector management through innovative e-learning solutions. Fourth, to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of social spending, UNDP will provide technical assistance to replace by 2016 the current assessment mechanisms for social programmes by an alternative tool that better targets the most vulnerable and addresses gender disparities.
