OPC 5 Public Policy Evaluation 5 Fiscal Impact of Food Emergency Bill

Fiscal Impact of Food Emergency Bill

September 11, 2019

Currently, national public policies on food and nutrition are implemented through the Food Policies and National Social Protection Plan programs, both of the Ministry of Health and Social Development, as well as through the Pro Bienestar program of the National Institute of Social Services for Pensioners and Retirees.

Two possible scenarios for the estimation of a fiscal cost arise from the Bill:

  1. if the increase is estimated based on the appropriations in force for the identified programs as of August 31, the cost would amount to AR$10.5 billion.
  2. If the increase is estimated based on the appropriations not executed in the identified programs as of August 31, the cost would amount to $4.06 billion.
