Budget support aims at better aligning support with country policies and reducing the burden of multiple, fragmented aid projects. This type of aid also attempts to strengthen country financial and management systems by using them, and, ultimately, to achieve better development results through more efficient, effective spending.

There is growing interest from various stakeholders in assessing the impacts of budget support and finding out whether or not budget support is indeed an effective way to support poverty reduction.

The OECD DAC Evaluation Network has developed a methodology to evaluate budget support, for assessing the chain of results and induced impacts of support at country level.

The methodological approach is available in both English and French 

The methodology was tested in evaluations of budget support in Tunisia, Mali and Zambia and, after revision, used in Tanzania, South Africa and Mozambique. Evaluations are now underway in Morocco and Burundi.
