Session 1 will discuss the evidence on the distributional impact of taxes and transfers and related methodological and data requirements, with a focus on the issues that are specific to carrying out distributional analysis in developing country contexts. Session 2 will include a discussion of recent trends in tax revenue levels and ‘mix’ in LICs and MICs and their implications for social protection financing.
