Divergences in Human Development Outcomes in Madhya Pradesh: The role of Fiscal Policy and Governance

  • 2017
  • Authors N. R. Bhanumurthy, H.K. Amarnath, Manish Prasad, Shiney Chakraborty and Richa Jain
  • Details The report has been produced in collaboration with the Madhya Pradesh government and UNICEF, Bhopal.
  • Price for printed copy Rs. 200.00
  • Abstract
    NIPFP has been privileged to partner with the Madhya Pradesh government and UNICEF in the production of this important report. The objective of fiscal policy and of good governance is to improve the lives of common people. Human development provides an excellent framework and metric within which the assessment and impact of such can be undertaken. This report provides both an analytical framework, and an empirical matrix to undertake such an exercise for Madhya Pradesh at the district level. The report has also carried out in depth analysis in several districts to understand specifically why human development outcomes may not have been achieved despite higher public expenditure. Here, important linkages between governance, human development and the efficacy of fiscal policy, have been identified. 
     
    We are confident that this will be a valuable resource for the Madhya Pradesh government to better target its human development interventions and to undertake reforms in fiscal policy and governance that will improve the quality and effectiveness of public expenditure in the state, so that our common endeavour- to ensure that public money is spent such that there is a tangible positive difference in the lives of all citizens- is secured.

  • Authors N.R. Bhanumurthy, H.K. Amar Nath, Sukanya Bose, Parma Devi Adhikari and Arkajyoti Jana
  • Details The report is based on a study commissioned by the State of Madhya Pradesh
  • Abstract

    Madhya Pradesh State MDG Status report is not just an accounting exercise to assess the achievement levels of Millennium Development Goals. The report responds to multidimensional aspirations of inter-district variations, interlinkages with public interventions and achievement levels. It studies the burden of non-achieving regions or districts on MP State’s overall performance. As we are moving towards Sustainable Development Goals, it is necessary to understand the dynamics of interventions and linkages. This report aims at providing a benchmark and a basis for common global future for achievements or deficiencies in MDGs and a way forward to move towards SDGs.
