APPPE/ESAFF Rwanda and Public Expenditure Tracking Systems (PETs)
APPPE/ESAFF Rwanda conducted PETs training in the two districts of Musanze and Rwamagane where a total of 25 farmers were trained. After the training and subsequent campaign, small scale farmers were sensitized on how National Budgets are produced. The SSFs were encouraged to involve themselves in budget formulation particularly the agriculture budget. Local leaders were also applauded for their understanding that they need to share information with the small farmers about budgets to ensure accountability.
