Effective, efficient, and transparent management of public resources is particularly important in a poor country like Niger. This study shows how difficult it is for Niger to significantly change its expenditure composition in a short time span. A narrow and volatile domestic resource base, heavy dependence on aid, and a large share of pre-determined expenditures, such as external debt payments, are important factors behind this lack of flexibility.

Under the Admin. of Gov. Davis, tobacco control (TC) efforts in CA have had a low priority. In the early 1990s, smoking was falling faster in CA than anywhere in the U.S. & probably the world, & progress was also made to decrease the frequency of tobacco use. The low political priority that the Davis Admin. & leg. have given the TC Program have impeded effective TC policy making & appropriate levels of funding.
