The Indian School of Public Policy (ISPP), organized a free workshop with Dr. Amir Ullah Khan on the topic “Setting Priorities: Policy Making and Development Finance".
Policies compete for their share of development finances. When tax revenues don’t go up in proportion to the demands on expenditure, policy makers must set priorities. To do so, evidence must be gathered and impact measured in areas such as health, education and farm distress, where it is difficult to cut down allocations.
