Donors and their partner governments generally agree that the road to sustainable development lies in channelling development funds through host country government budgets. However, there are concerns that this increases the risk of corruption and reduces accountability.

How PwC can help

At PwC we focus on the budget process and help governments create and deploy effective compliance programmes at all levels of public financial management systems. And, because of our extensive networks in both donor and recipient countries, we are able to address the many problems created by corruption. We always favour preventative rather than punitive solutions.
