ABOUT US

ISODEC's work on the national annual budget over the years has contributed to creating the space for public input into the budgeting process at the national level. It has also compelled the government to take to organising regional platforms to discuss the national budget with the citizenry. In addition, our budget work provides the platform for tracking public expenditure from the national through to district to community levels and it also provides budget information services to promote pro-poor and equitable impacts of the budget.
