Peer-learning and exchange on strengthening climate change budgeting reforms, transparency and accountability
Since October 2020, the Inclusive Budgeting and Financing for Climate Change in Africa (IBFCCA) Programme has been working closely with governments and civil society to strengthen climate responsive budgeting across Africa. Actions cover the entire budget cycle and have been focused on: developing climate finance accountability frameworks; climate public expenditure reviews; and introducing climate expenditure tracking reforms. With civil society, the work has focused on improving climate transparency and accountability. This peer-learning and exchange shared the lessons from the ongoing in-country work and considered how the methodologies applied can further be developed and refined for a more consistent and methodological approach to climate budgeting reforms in Africa. In addition, it explored how the climate accountability ecosystem can be strengthened by bringing together the key formal and informal actors.
