Budget Track

Budget Track 2016 - Nutrition

This issue of Budget Track is a special issue focusing on Nutrition. It is a part of the efforts, to deepen the policy discourse in India on nutrition specifically from the public investment perspective. The recent changes in the federal fiscal architecture and the policy landscape over the last year have a number of implications for financing for nutrition. Since addressing undernutrition requires a multi-sectoral approach, adequate public investment for nutrition across a range of sectors is crucial. Moreover, there has been a disconnect to some extent between the discourse on nutrition and that on budgets in the country; hence, this issue of Budget Track aims to bring together insights from both the domains in order to develop a holistic understanding of public investment for nutrition. To this end, this publication focuses on the key concerns, strategies, challenges and success stories in the domain of nutrition and public expenditure in the current context.

People's Budget Initiative

People's Budget InitiativeA civil society coalition, which campaigns for the inclusion of people's movements, grassroots organisations and national and international NGOs in the policy processes that determine the priorities underlying government budgets in India.
