The Institute of Development and Economic Alternatives (IDEAS) Pakistan is  launching the ‘Punjab Budget Forecasting Tool’. This is an interactive, web-based tool for forecasting the revenue and expenditure of the Punjab Government. It has been developed with the aim of making the budget more accessible to students of economics and others with an interest in public finance. It will also help policy makers in simulating various scenarios by altering the underlying assumptions of the forecasting model.

The web-based version is based on an Excel-based Forecasting Tool developed by Umbreen Fatima, Research Associate, IDEAS. The original model for this forecasting tool was developed by Dr. Anjum Nasim, Senior Research Fellow, IDEAS, in his paper ‘A Forecasting Model of Punjab Revenue and Spending’. The web-based tool has been developed by the team at Plotree Info Design.

Please RSVP to in order to attend.
