How public money is collected and distributed is one of the most pressing political and economic questions of our time.

Lebanon’s score on the Open Budget Survey (6/100), stands below the regional average of countries of the Middle East and North Africa. It is hard for citizens and other stakeholders to have an overview of public spending and to make year-to-year comparisons or follow trends.

The Lebanon Citizen Budget is an initiative of the Institut des Finances Basil Fuleihan and the budget directorate at the Directorate General of Finance to improve budget transparency and accessibility and to increase the value of budgetary and fiscal information, making it easy to find and re-use by everyone.

It was developed with the initial support of UNICEF, under the project “Enhancing Budget Transparency, Accountability and Inclusiveness in Lebanon”.
