Inclusive Growth

The research on Inclusive Growth proposes policies to promote economic inclusiveness – by ensuring that economic opportunity is geographically and socially dispersed – while not impairing the basis of the current economic reform agenda. Women and youth are over-represented amongst the economically marginalised and so are expected to be particular beneficiaries of this policy report.

CAPRI launches report on Jamaica’s first ever Open Budget Survey

On Thursday, December 3, 2020, the Caribbean Policy Research Institute (CAPRI) launched its latest report “Following the Money: Transparency and Oversight in the Government Budget Process in Jamaica”, completed with the support of the International Budget Partnership (IBP). The launch took place via a web forum, livestreamed to the public via YouTube and CAPRI’s website.

November, 2020
Thematic Area: 

In 2019, for the first time the Government of Jamaica was (GOJ) assessed for how much it facilitates public access to budget information, and how many formal opportunities it provides for the public to participate in the national budget process. The Open Budget Survey (OBS,) the world’s only independent, comparative, and objective research instrument for this purpose, was used to do the assessment. The OBS also examined the role of Jamaica’s budget oversight institutions, such as the Parliament and Auditor General’s Department (AGD), in the budget process. Based on these indicators, the OBS provided an assessment of Jamaican citizens’ ability to engage the budget process and provide relevant feedback to the GOJ about budget decisions.
