Greening national budget processes
Abstract:This chapter outlines the linkages between the national budget process and a country's environmental performance and identifies capacity needs for greening national budgets. Among these are good fiscal knowledge, appropriate engagement of key actors, training and human resource development, targeting weaknesses and exploiting synergies and cross‐sectoral links. Based on the framework introduced in Chapter 1, this chapter provides guidance on how to develop the required capacities, using case studies to illustrate how capacity development can be supported in various country contexts.
