Making sector budget support work for service delivery: wider policy implications

Briefing/policy papers

Written by Tim Williamson, David Booth

The third and final Project Briefing on Sector Based Support (SBS) examines the wider policy implications of a study on this theme. It finds that incentives are the key to what sector budget support (SBS) does well and what it does badly, and that strengthening service delivery incentives will involve substantial multi-level efforts by SBS donors and partners. It argues that these efforts must address the underlying causes, rather than the symptoms, of weak incentives.
