This is the Good Practice Note (GPN) for the second phase of a study on Sector Budget Support (SBS) in Practice (SBSIP) for the Strategic Partnership with Africa (SPA). Sector Budget Support is a modality for providing official development assistance which donor agencies are increasingly using to support African countries to achieve their development policy objectives. The overall purpose of the Study is to draw on the experience of SBS in different countries and sectors to guide future improvements in policy and practice by partner countries and donors.
The good practice note is a starting point for the establishment of better practice in the design and implementation of SBS programmes.
