In 2008, CABRI collaborated with the OECD to include African countries’ budgeting practices and procedures in the database. Twenty-six African countries have completed the 99-question survey, which encompasses the budget cycle and includes a section on aid management. The survey results have undergone a peer review process and have been analysed by the LSE and compiled in a joint publication with the African Development Bank.
The purpose of this initiative is to provide:
- A cross-country analysis based on the survey findings
- A summary of the key results of the survey on a case by case basis
The publication is the first in the series of African Budget Practices and Procedures Reports and was launched on 7 April 2009, at the 5th Annual CABRI Seminar.
