This grant will enable the Initiative to expand its work in East and West Africa and increase its technical assistance and peer learning among network members.
for general operating support  
The International Budget Partnership (IBP) is the leader of a global civil society movement to use budget analysis and advocacy as a tool to reduce poverty and to improve the quality of governance. The IBP’s Open Budget Survey is conducted in over 100 countries to measure the degree to which budget processes are transparent and open to public input. The organization also provides training and technical assistance to local organizations to strengthen their advocacy campaigns for budget policies and practices that make efficient use of public resources while effectively addressing the needs of the poor and marginalized.
