Climate Budget Tagging (CBT) is a tool for monitoring and tracking of climate-related expenditures in the national budget system. It provides comprehensive data on climate-relevant spending, enabling government to make informed decisions and prioritize climate investments. CBT enables public scrutiny on government’s and donors’ spending on tackling climate change issues strengthening accountability and transparency.
