Oxfam Mobilising Progressive Domestic Resources for Quality Public Services

Donor
Oxfam is a non.profit non.governmental organisation which is part of a confederation of 17 organisations working together in more than 90 countries to mobilize the power of people against poverty.Mobilising Progressive Domestic Resources for Quality Public Services is a 3 year project with the overall objective of making fiscal systems in at least 3 countries more progressive to tackle inequality and poverty. Oxfam will do this by building citizen.led campaigns on fiscal justice to generate the missing political will amongst leaders and policy.makers that is necessary to strengthen the revenue.raising potential of tax.systems and deliver more and better investment in free public services.Through this project Oxfam will push for domestic resources in in Kenya and Vietnam to be mobilised in a responsible progressive and transparent way with strong civil society influence. Oxfam will also push for revenue raised to be spent on quality public service provision (healt education water and sanitation). Through influencing both fairer and more accountable revenue.raising and spending this project will strengthen the social contract between citizens and their government and tackle inequalities.Putting fiscal policy at the heart of national influencing work in this way requires partner organisations to engage in the design and delivery of national strategy therefore we have proposed an initial 6.month inception phase during which detailed log frame and activity plan will be developed with partners for the remaining 2.5 years of the project. This approach is crucial to ensure the project is strategic and owned by civil society and has lasting impact.Oxfam will work with partners to target policy makers in order to reduce inequality and increase access to quality public services. The building of political will amongst policy makers will ensure government meet their responsibilities to eradicate poverty and reduce inequalities and be accountable to citizens ín doing so.The project beneficiaries will be citizens especially women in areas where Oxfam and our partners work. Citizens will be better able to advocate for their rights as taxpayers to quality public service delivery. Partners will benefit from technical expertise on DRM and advocacy skills through capacity building and training. Government officials will benefit from recognizing their responsibility for service provision and tackling inequality.
