Domestic resource mobilisation

Domestic public finance should be at the heart of all governments’ efforts to achieve inclusive growth, poverty eradication and sustainable development. The Collect More, Spend Better approach supports developing countries in improving domestic resource mobilisation, more effective and efficient public expenditure and debt management. It focuses on tax evasion, tax avoidance and illicit financial flows as well as on the efficiency, effectiveness and fairness of tax systems and of social protection financing. It promotes sound public expenditure management to convert revenues into public goods and services, through fiscal discipline and the strategic allocation of resources and the use of eGovernment systems for efficient tax collection and transparency in use of public funds.

Official Development Assistance (ODA) continues to play an important role. By better linking budget support and blending, the EU and its Member States can contribute to improving public investment efficiency in partner countries, by supporting macroeconomic and fiscal stability frameworks, sound sector policies and reforms, comprehensive annual and medium-term budgetary frameworks and sound public financial management systems, including transparent procurement.
