These sets of guidelines are for use by all the actors involved in the policy and budgetary processes. This means the process of linking policy with planning, with budget preparation and execution, with monitoring and evaluation. The guidelines have been produced to facilitate effective participation in this process; by providing a common platform of communication for policy makers, analysts, planners, budget officials, statisticians, parliamentarians, civil society organizations and the media. The guidelines are about how to adopt a results-based pro-poor approach to the budget. This means keeping sight of the transformation desired in people's- women, men, girls and boys-lives; steering the policy, planning and budgeting process accordingly and evaluating the effectiveness of government intervention to achieve this transformation at each point of the process.
