The SNG Punjab team focussed on the development of knowledge products, including brochures, policy briefs, toolkits, handbooks, video documentaries and quarterly new-letters among others.
As part of its outreach strategy, the SNG Punjab team developed products to enable the delivery of the following programme-level outputs:
  • Improved Public Financial Management (PFM) and planning systems
