With a vision to make the Government of Rajasthan financially resilient for the empowerment of women, girls, and children, CIFF helped set up an innovative financing mechanism called ‘RajKosh’ for generating additional resources to finance programmes. It aimed to mitigate the strain on financial resources by reducing the fiscal deficit, raising additional resources from public and private sectors, and improving the effectiveness of government spending.
We provided technical assistance to CIFF and the Government of Rajasthan to raise financial resources critical for sustaining and increasing the impact of ongoing investment in nutrition.
- Improve operating efficiency and effectiveness of spending through a ‘scheme rationalisation’ exercise to analyse the flow of resources in various schemes
- Assist the Department of Women and Child Development (DWCD), Government of Rajasthan in setting up and operationalising a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) to mobilise and manage funds
- Raise financial resources – at least US$ 8 million by the end of the investment period
