This report focuses on a study on Sector Budget Support (SBS) in Practice for the Strategic Partnership with Africa. The study draws on the experience from the provision of SBS in ten sectors in five different countries to guide future improvements in the use of SBS by partner countries and donors.

This report demonstrates SBS is an important and potentially effective modality for supporting improved service delivery in developing countries. The accompanying good practice note is a starting point for the establishment of better practice in the design and implementation of SBS programmes.
