Budget support

Budget support

Where the conditions are right, the Commission is committed to provide budget support as a means to strengthening country ownership, financing national development strategies (including poverty reduction strategies) and promoting sound and transparent public finances. Budget support involves the direct transfer of funds to a partner country’s budget where they can be managed using national systems.
 

The way EuropeAid transfers funds to recipient governments – and the types of budget support – is further explained in 'Budget support and dialogue with partner countries' .
