Economic Governance Programme (EGP): Prioritising resources for development
The EGP aims to support the Government’s fiscal planning to achieve medium to long-term development priorities through three sub-components – Development planning and statistics, Fiscal policy reform and Aid coordination.
The programme aims to deliver the following four main outcomes;
1. A coherent evidence-based development planning system combining strategic national development priorities at federal and state levels.
2. Substantive progress towards the adoption and implementation of fiscal responsibility legislation
3. Available, accessible, gender disaggregated and timely data at Federal and State levels to inform policy and planning and to serve as a credible and transparent basis for monitoring development performance.
4. Institutionalisation of an architecture and system for aid coordination and management which assists Nigeria in meeting its objectives, in line with the Paris Declaration and the Accra Agenda for Action, aligning development assistance with national priorities, improved transparency, increased aid effectiveness and greater emphasis on mutual accountability.
The strategies for achieving these outcomes include advocacy and dialogues, institutional and human capacity development, leveraging partnerships and cooperation to provide access to global best practises and sharing of experiences.
