21st October 2013

DTCE implemented the research study titled “Research on Government Officials Survey on Administrative, Tax and Gender Reforms in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa” funded by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.

The primary research objective was to assess the perception of local administration on the capability of the state to fulfill its governance functions related to the thematic areas of administrative, tax and prevention of violence against women. Under the guidance of GIZ, DTCE designed and implemented the perception survey to obtain quantitative data that is representative of stakeholders of GIZ’s Good Governance Programme in the government. These included local administration officials who hold key positions in the relevant government departments such as municipality, local revenue, and social welfare i.e. Excise and Taxation Officers (ETOs), Chief Municipal Officers (CMOs) and District Officers – Social Welfare (DO-SW).

The survey was conducted in the 3rd quarter of 2013 in all 26 districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and 45 randomly selected Municipal Committees (MCs). Findings of this research would provide valuable insight into government affairs as input to designing and improving GiZ’s governance program for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
