Past Research Projects
Introduced around 2000, general budget support (GBS) was quickly and widely accepted under the current development assistance regime. However, in the past few years, some OECD member states reversed their initial stance and began offering critical perspectives on GBS. The benefits of GBS have not been fully verified through deliberation by considering the entire process flow from upstream to downstream. The purpose of this project include: confirming the impact of policy dialogue through verification of the flypaper effect, focusing on GBS's “untied" nature; verifying service delivery by implementing GBS: verifying GBS's impact on the outcome: and identifying bottlenecks in GBS implementation in developing countries.
