  • Consolidating Democracy in Pakistan (CDIP) Programme CDIP is a two and a half year programme funded by the Conflict, Stability & Security Fund (CSSF), a cross-UK government departmental fund to help fragile and conflict affected states. The objective of CDIP is to support the consolidation of democratic practice in Pakistan, through strengthening the capacity of its political institutions to be more capable, accountable and responsive to the needs and aspirations of the Pakistani people.  Consolidating democracy through enhanced inclusion and legitimacy begins – and continues – beyond election day. The programme will work closely with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP); the Parliament; Provincial Assemblies; political parties; and civil society. It will also focus particularly on enhancing the participation and empowerment of marginalised groups, including women, youth, persons with disabilities and minorities. CDIP will utilise its convening power to broker sustainable relationships that will bring together disparate groups in Pakistani society, and facilitate the building of consensus around the democratic process. Total Project Budget: £10,550,217 DFID Funding: £10,558,492

  • Tax, Audit and Transparency (TAUT) Programme TAUT seeks to support the Government of Ethiopia in progressively expanding the tax base and ensuring more effective tax administration whilst improving the business climate and public oversight and transparency across TAUT agencies and the wider public sector. This translates into three interlinked project components: Tax to support the broadening of the Ethiopian tax base to enable a more business-friendly environment through strengthening the system by addressing policy issues, improving tax administration and reducing taxpayer compliance costs; Audit with the goal to strengthen the effectiveness of public oversight and to improve the mechanism of implementing recommendation in federal and regional governments; and Anti-Corruption to improve practices and public engagement by enhancing anticorruption practices, improving state accountability and creating better engagement with stakeholders, including the public, civil society and the business sector. Finally, there is an overarching gender theme with the aim to improve the role of women in the tax system, audit and oversight and anti-corruption efforts.
