Our focus

We exist to change the power asymmetries that limit civic ownership in emerging democracies and also strengthen stakeholders with insights and solutions on transparency, accountability, efficient governance, and economic development that improve citizens’ quality of life in the communities that we serve.

Service Delivery Tracking

There was no better way to address critical service delivery issues in Nigeria. From the non-inclusion of citizens in developmental projects and the increasing number of abandoned projects to the poor execution of the few implemented projects, service delivery in our focus countries needed a solution, and we came up with one – Tracka

Natural Resource Governance

The need for robust frameworks on natural resource governance has never been more important, especially in a country where the extractive industry has functioned as a pander used to cushion the needs of very few highly placed in society. We are working to change this. 

Institutional Support

BudgIT has progressed in sustaining partnerships with subnational governments by providing technical support on fiscal transparency, citizen budgeting, data visualization and data analysis, which aims to improve the capacities of public institutions to deliver results for citizens.

Research & Policy Advisory

The Research and Policy Advisory team supports the organisation by designing qualitative and quantitative research plans and methodologies, conducting research on fiscal governance, public financial management, development finance, natural resource governance and, more broadly, other public policy-related issues.

Strengthening Health Systems

In November 2020, BudgIT including partners (under the CTAP project) received support to deliver a singular data system for COVID-19 investments in Africa, engage partners in 7 focus countries to develop strategies for demanding accountability for the use of public resources and service delivery in their contexts and facilitate cross-sectional learning across countries.
