The objective of this project is

1. To increase our insight in how more transparency and openness to the public may be introduced into the budget processes. How can the institutions that are central to these processes such as Ministry of Finance, major spending ministries, parliament, audit and civil society be more involved?

2. To provide insight into the involvement of civil society in budgetary processes at present and suggest how involvement may be strengthened, for example through capacity building in "economic literacy".

3. To advice donors on measures to be taken to ensure more transparency and public involvement in budgetary processes.
