Budget Analysis in Ukraine

This case study examines the CIDA-funded project, National State Budget Analysis by Secretariat of the President, which produced the Budget Analysis Manual, including a gender-budgeting chapter, for Ukraine's Office of the President. The project was led by the Conference Board of Canada and its local partner, the Ukrainian International Centre for Policy Studies, who produced the manual and tested it over a three-month period. This case study reveals how client ownership of the manual was cemented when President Office analysts and consultants applied the model 'live' to the 2009 budget.
