Appendix V: Sectorwide Approaches to
poor countries. More than half of the approaches have been in the health
and education sectors. Thus far, Australia is the only bilateral donor to
take a sectorwide approach in the Pacific, and this is a limited pilot project
that has not been evaluated.
In addition, from a recent survey of 16 sector programs, more than 80
percent of the aid provided was in the form of traditional project
assistance, making use of individual donor procedures, and just 17 percent
was given in the form of sector budget support. These results may reflect
documents on sectorwide assistance, which describe donors moving from
project assistance strategies to a sectorwide approach. The U.S. proposal
to the FSM and the RMI, by contrast, would shift from a budget support
strategy to a sectorwide approach.
