In Angola, the SP&PFM Project successfully engaged with the Ministry of Finance, resulting in the establishment of programme-based budgeting and gender-based budgeting. More than 120 government officials from the Ministry of Finance were trained in August and continue to be engaged in developing programme-based budgeting manuals, contributing to stronger public finance management for the sector. As a result, the 2022 National Budget was the first to include both of these approaches.

The Project also organized a series of ten webinars which had over 14,000 attendees. These webinars were entitled “Simplifying the Budget” and were carried out in partnership with the Ministry of Finance, which provided a digital advocacy platform for increased transparency and participation in the management of public finances.

This initiative is part of the SP&PFM global approach which aims to foster links between social protection and public finance management. This approach provides technical assistance to countries in reviewing and bringing options for social protection funding and expenditure efficiency, improving the budget programming, classification and delivery of social protection spending.
