Putting aid on budget study

DFID for CABRI, Multi country

The Paris Declaration put the use of government systems at the centre of the international aid effectiveness agenda.   Several of its indicators related directly or indirectly to “putting aid on budget”, which thus gained prominence as a joint concern of governments and donors.

Against this background, the Collaborative Africa Budget Reform Initiative (CABRI) commissioned a Mokoro team to undertake a study into putting aid on budget. The study involved ten country case studies; Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda.

The aim of the study was to produce outputs that would better equip governments in Sub-Saharan Africa to lead country-level processes to ensure external development assistance (aid) flows are properly reflected in national budget documents, ex ante (Budget presented to legislature) and ex post (out-turn accounts).
