More than 150 women and 200 men representing CSOs from 12 KP districts, Abbottabad, Battagram, Dera Ismail Khan, Haripur, Karak, Kohat, Mansehra, Mardan, Nowshera, Peshawar Shangla & Swat attended a People’s Assembly on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Budget FY2019-20 organised by Omar Asghar Khan Foundation in Abbottabad today.
At the event the Foundation presented its analysis of district-wise distribution of development funds, sectoral allocations, fiscal decentralization, gender-based budgets, and trends in block funds in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Budget of FY2019-20 and assessments of the province’s budgets over the past ten years. “Budgets often seem daunting with figures in millions and billions. But it is important to understand that budgets have a direct link with the availability of medicines in a village BHU, provision of drinking water in a VC, regular disposal of garbage in urban neighbourhoods, and, construction of rural link roads,” explained the Foundation’s Executive Director, Ms. Rashida Dohad.
