General Budget Support (GBS)  is an aid modality which provides resource  to support  poverty reduction in Tanzania. GBS provides untied budget support to Tanzania using a unified assessment framework and a common dialogue process. One of the objectives of budget support is to increase the level of discretionary resources available to Government.

Budget support started to operate in Tanzania in 2001, replacing the Multilateral Debt Fund (MDF). Following its introduction there has been an increased sense of ownership of the development process by the Government together with major contributions made to the alignment process and donor harmonisation. It has also helped focus dialogue on the strategic issues of policy and economic management and as a result made positive contributions to policy design (Joint Evaluation of General Budget Support, Tanzania 1995-2004. April 2005:143-144).

GBS is favoured by donors for countries like Tanzania which are politically stable, have carried out  successful economic reform programmes, have initiated governance reforms and which have shown a strong commitment to poverty reduction and the targets set out in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Tanzania is one of the leading recipients of GBS in the world. For more information on GBS in Tanzania, visit DPG Tanzania website.
