Unfinished business: making a difference in basic education: an evaluation of the impact of education policies in Zambia and the role of budget support

Since the late 1990s, donors and recipient countries have increasingly shifted their development policies from project aid towards a sector-wide approach and later to sector and general budget support. It was felt that these new modalities would enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of aid and would contribute to sustainable development. However, the lack of information on tangible results has contributed to debates in a number of countries about the effectiveness of budget support. This report analyzes the consequences of the shift to sector and general budget support for the education sector in Zambia. The report contributes to a broader evaluation of budget support in Zambia and a policy evaluation of Dutch support to the education sector.
