Social Protection Public Expenditure Review

Development Pathways undertook a Social Protection Public Expenditure Review as part of the DFID, Irish Aid and UNICEF funded 'Expanding Social Protection Programme' in Uganda. The PER had an important role to play on the on-going definition and development of the social protection sector, and established the levels and trends in spending, and the efficiency and effectiveness of expenditure. The research was done using a ‘q-squared’ methodology, meaning analysis of quantitative trends and patterns were complimented with a qualitative understanding of the underlying processes and systems guiding public finance and administrative management.
