Effects of Budget Support - A Discussion of Early Evidence
This report stops short of presenting any potential impacts from budget support on poverty reduction since it is assumed that budget support mainly contributes to poverty reduction by creating an environment where the recipient governments are able to pursue this strategy.

The major question then, must be how to do that in the most efficient and effective way.
