Partners:                            Miftah + Aman
Starting Date:                  April 2018

This year, ARIJ and Oxfam along with the partners (Miftah + Aman) are in phase II of the project and are continuing on the work they have started back in 2015.

The objective of the project to increase the responsiveness of Palestinian national and local budgets to the needs of poor and marginalized citizens including women, while supporting autonomy and transparency in revenue generation (long-term outcome).

There are six expected results by the end of this project:
• Improved policies - Governments and global actors
• Strengthened CSOs
• Increased political will
• Increased citizens' voice
• Stronger and wider alliances
• Shifted norms and attitudes
All of these expected results are meant to further Oxfam’s and the partners’ ambitions by increasing the responsiveness of the Palestinian national and local budgets to the needs of poor and marginalized citizens including women, while supporting autonomy and transparency in revenue generation (long-term outcome). This will ultimately lead to more citizens enjoy access to greater quality and quantity of basic socio-economic rights (health, education and welfare) and have their voice heard in a more democratic society (impact).
