State Fiscal Transparency, Accountability and Sustainability in Nigeria

The Policy Practice was commissioned by the World Bank to support the preparation of a Program for Results (P4R) operation in Nigeria promoting state fiscal transparency, accountability and sustainability.  The Policy Practice analysed how the political economy of Nigerian states affected the prospects for financial management reforms targeted by the proposed operation. The analysis informed the design of the P4R operation, in particular the selection of the Disbursement Linked Indicators that determined financial allocations to states.
