The 2020 Citizen’s budget is a simplified version of the 2020 approved budget estimates aimed at communicating key Public Finance
information and development objectives of the Government of The Gambia to its citizens, whilst adhering to budget transparency and
accountability for the effective and efficient utilization of public resources.
Putting into account that citizens are the main beneficiaries, there is great need for them to know what the national budget entails and to
encourage them to play an active role in the budget process.
This brief presents an analysis of central government expenditure from January 2019 to December 2019. It also aims to inform Senior Management about the composition of total expenditure by different classification, highlighting the absorption capacity of different budget entities (BEs), and give an indication of expenditure trends compared to the same period a year earlier. It should be noted that all expenditure referred to in this brief is solely Government Local Fund (GLF), and the report does not factor any donor funds (loans and grants), including projects across the country.
