The shrinking oil revenues as a result of petroleum price volatility, fiscal stresses and extreme economic austerity have posed serious budgetary constraints on the economy. Resultantly, non-oil revenue diversification is emerging as a priority area for the nation's development. 

The ability of government to sustainably expand the domestic resource base and efficiently allocate these resources in a transparent and equitable manner for service delivery will constitute the foundation for building public trust and confidence in government. This will contribute to sustainable peace and social cohesion.

Planned Outputs

  • Strengthen domestic revenue administration at subnational levels.
  • Improved capacity to formulate harmonized tax laws, regulatory frameworks and policies across states.
  • Strengthen tax policy and regulatory framework reforms at state levels.
  • Build institutional and human resource capacity of select parliamentary committees for efficient oversight responsabilities for safaguarding public welfare.

Beneficiaries

  • Revenue officials in the state ministries of finance.
  • Officials in the state revenue authority.
  • State level legislative assembly.
  • IDPs, host communities and vulnerable populations
