The development of budgets at district level and empowering the district administrations to carry out need assessment before the preparation of budgets is a significant milestone that the provincial government wants to achieve before the new local government is in place.
In view of this development, the government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa initiated a series of trainings on budget and meetings on expenditure reviews in district Lower Dir on 14 January 2021 with technical assistance of Sub-National Governance (SNG) program. All devolved heads of departments were invited along with their budget and accounts officials.
The session was held in the assembly hall and chaired by ADC F&P. The session covered several topics on expenditure review, need assessment and budget preparation; one after the other to capitalize on the opportunity of having all head of departments and the relevant staff along with other important stakeholders, on the same forum.
