SDPI is collaborating with SEED to conduct an online launch of the report ‘Reform of Pensions: Lessons from Successful Examples in Pakistan and Beyond’. Accrued pension liabilities are rapidly increasing, becoming a fiscal burden for Pakistan as well as the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (GoKP). The report brings together perspectives from government officials and independent experts to highlight successful pension reforms based on evidence from national and international experiences. Through this webinar, we intend to explore how these learnings could be relevant to the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government. The proceedings of this meeting will be submitted to the Finance Department, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Pay and Pensions Committee of the federal government.
