The Rise (and Fall) of Budget Support

(p.97) 6 Tracking a Craze
The Development Dance

Haley J. Swedlund

Cornell University Press

Chapter 6 charts the rise and fall of budget support as a popular aid delivery mechanism. Because budget support promised to reduce donor commitment problems, it opened up the possibility for a new, more favourable bargaining compromise between donor agencies and recipient countries. However, ultimately neither donor agencies nor recipient governments were able to enforce the promises made by the other side. Consequently, the negotiated compromise that enabled the emergence of budget support was not sustainable past an initial period of enthusiasm.
