Abstract

This paper used an empirical model based on a micro-theoretic foundation to estimate the impact of intergovernmental transfers on education sector. The results show that increasing the amount of resources to provincial governments through intergovernmental fiscal transfers and grants constituted through NFC awards leads to marginal increase in the provincial expenditure on education. Project lending and gender sensitive programs have greater positive impact on education financing.
