General budget support was suspended in Ethiopia following political disturbances after the May 2005 elections. Development partners have now introduced a new and more accountable mechnism for channeling money through the Government of Ethiopia to protect and promote basic services for the poor. This programme is known as the Protection of Basic Services (PBS) and includes stingent measures to ensure transparency and accountability. PBS is providing financial support through Government channels, requiring the Government to spend the money on basic social services and also to maintain its own financial commitments to these services.
PBS consists of the following four main components: Sub-national Basic Services; Health MDG Performance Facility; Financial Transparency and Accountability; and Social Accountability.The objective of the Second Phase of the Protection of Basic Services Program Project (PBSII) is to contribute to expanding access and improving the quality of basic services in education, health, agriculture, water supply and sanitation, and rural roads delivered by subnational governments in Ethiopia, while continuing to deepen transparency and local accountability in service delivery. Four subprograms are the components of this project.
