The team Anthro Insights attended two days of training on Analyzing Public Budgets with a Gender Lens organized by Omar Asghar Khan Foundation.
The Omar Asghar Khan Foundation is helping its Fempower-Pakistan partners: Shirkat Gah, Simorgh, and Anthro Insights to build skills for analyzing public budgets with a gender lens. On 17-18 February 2021, it facilitated a training workshop in Lahore for about 20 reps of the partner organizations. Drawing on its extensive work in KP and also global experiences, the Foundation used a case-study methodology to help participants develop skills in budget analysis. In groups, participants analyzed different aspects of the FY2020-21 budgets of Punjab, Sindh, and Balochistan. The Foundation also shared its analysis of KP’s budget FY2020-21.
The partners also discussed issues that could help develop a framework for analyzing the provincial budgets under Fempower-Pakistan. The budget analysis will be combined with social accountability actions to provide analysis of budgets and their reflections on-the-ground.
