The project aims to develop theoretical background for social benefits monetization in Ukraine. At this research CASE Ukraine experts will concentrate on the issue of price subsidies. The main idea is to econometrically simulate elimination of price subsidies and estimate possible consequences of the reform on poverty level, inequality and fiscal stance.
The key goal of the project was development of a framework for fiscal risks assessment. The framework was intended to become an instrument for decision making at the Finance Ministry of Ukraine. The instrument should be applied during the budget planning process and for day-to-day monitoring of budget execution.
