- Subtitle: WIEGO Working Paper No. 12
This paper considers whether national and local government budgets in the Philippines make a difference to informal economy workers – particularly home-based workers, street vendors and waste pickers, the majority of whom are women.
It looks into the extent of government budgetary support as well as the impacts of national and local government programmes and projects (in line with the poverty reduction national strategy) on informal workers.
The degree to which governments are cognizant of the situation of workers in the informal economy while creating budgets are explored, and the measures that are directly or indirectly targeted to assist the workers are examined.
