Global Witness and International Budget Partnership submission to the European Commission on budget support

Global Wtness has produced this Submission to the European Commission’s green paper on the future of budget support to third countries. It is based on the combined experience of Global Witness and the International Budget Partnership.  With a view to improving governance standards and domestic revenue generation, and to reducing wastage and corruption, we believe the EC should use its budget support policy to promote better transparency and accountability in aid recipient countries.
