dc.description.abstractThough often seen as technical and far removed from ordinary people’s everyday concerns, the budget is perhaps the government’s most powerful tool to tackle economic and social challenges and pursue desired policy goals. Further, meeting international development goals—including recent agreements around the United Nation’s sustainable development goals and climate change—will depend on the national budget policies adopted to support their implementation. What a government proposes in its budget could literally change lives, particularly for those who are poor and marginalized and rely heavily on public services to meet their basic needs. Thus, the public needs to know what spending and tax policies the budget proposes, have a voice in budget decisions, and be able to hold government accountable for managing public money.
