Mobilising Progressive Domestic Resources for Quality Public Services in Kenya and Vietnam: Completion report 2015-2018
Oxfam sees fiscal justice as central to the fight against extreme economic inequality. Evidence shows that government policies on taxation and public spending can be among the best tools for tackling inequality if they are used to create an economic system that redistributes resources and power towards those who are most excluded and marginalized.
Oxfam worked with partners in Kenya and Vietnam to implement the Mobilising Progressive Domestic Resources for Quality Public Services project 2014–2018, funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland. This completion report describes the project and its role in Oxfam’s long-term strategy to fight inequality – and together with partners and allies to increase people’s voices and promote progressive taxation and spending for essential services through the Fiscal Accountability for Inequality Reduction – Even It Up (FAIR–EIU) programme.
