GIZ LNOB Innovation Forum: LNOB, Inequality and Fiscal Policy


“The wealth of the world’s five richest billionaires has more than doubled since the start of this decade, while 60% of humanity has grown poorer”. Inequality INC, Oxfam International January 2024

In times of rising inequality, we must ask ourselves how society and the societal structures we have created aggravate the divide between the poor and the rich.

We cordially invite you to the first session of our internal GIZ LNOB Innovation Forum in 2024, which will focus on the intertwined relation between inequality and fiscal policy. 

Together with Stefanie Rauscher and Markus Paffhausen from the sector programme ‘Good Financial Governance’ we will take a closer look on leveraging fiscal tools to reduce inequality and reach first the further left behind.

This theoretical input will be complemented by two practical examples: Katie Pyle and Namita Aggarwal from the Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy in India that co-authored the World Bank Study Gender-Based Discounts on Taxes Related to Property: Role in Encouraging Female Ownership – A Case Study of Indian States and Cities will present their findings and policy recommendations for gender-transformative tax policy.

In addition, Budi Kuncoro from the GIZ project PEFORM in Indonesia will deliver insights on how GIZ advises government partners on tax policies to strengthen a just transition.

Monday, 26. February, 14:00 – 15:15 CET via MS TEAMS.

Looking forward to your participation! The LNOB Innoforum-Team
