The report calls for reforming the public financial management and increasing fiscal space for education, mainly for the most vulnerable groups such as women and girls and segregated communities. This ultimately lays the foundation of a new social contract that invests in public social sectors and contributes to closing the gender gap. This research project paves the way for a high-level national policy dialogue that brings together all relevant stakeholders including and not limited to, government personnel and public officials, leaders in the non-profit sector, representatives from the UN family and international donors, and the general public. The aim of the policy dialogue is to discuss the policy recommendations formulated during this research mission and explore their impacts in the Lebanese context.
