Conditional Grants Scheme, past, present and future
The presentation by the Conditional Grants Scheme (CGS) Unit, Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on the Millennium Development Goals to the UK Department for International Development (DFID) explains what the CGS is, how it works, what has happened to date and plans for the future.
The presentation first describes the CGS and outlines its objectives then gives details of how the scheme works. This is followed by data on grants to states and graphs of grants by sector 2007 and 2009, together with examples of projects and beneficiaries. The presentation then describes consolidation in 2010 when no grants were awarded. The intention behind not awarding grants in 2010 was to allow states to finish projects underway, to analyse progress to date, to bring the CGS in line with federal budget planning and to put in place logistics for scaling up the scheme.
