2  Conceptualized through the partnership between the Institute of Law and Economics (ILE) & the Centre for Concern (CfC).  The Project responds to:  The need for a more inclusive approach to public policy determination in the Caribbean, and  In particular, the information and capacity constraints that limit participation in fiscal policy.  The Project recognizes that citizens have not made use of opportunities afforded to them to actively engage in policy making, especially fiscal policy, consequently,  Project focuses on information sharing and capacity building of civil society organizations (CSOs) around fiscal policy issues.
