International education aid provided in the context of programme-based approaches (PBAs) and expressed as a percentage of the total disbursed education aid. This indicator is measured by the donors’ use of (general or sector) budget support and/or joint financing mechanisms such as pool funding mechanisms. PBA is a way of engaging in development co-operation based on the principles of coordinated support for a locally owned programme of development, such as a national education plan. Programme-based approaches share the following features: Leadership by the host country; a single comprehensive programme and budget framework; a formalized process for donor coordination and harmonization of donor procedures; efforts to increase the use of country systems. This is part of the 2011 Monitoring Exercise on Development Effectiveness in the Education Sector, an unprecedented picture of aid effectiveness in the education sector that can be used as the basis for in-country dialogue and debate going forward. This information looks at how education aid is delivered and managed by development partners and governments.
