This report presents insights gathered through the delivery of the EU Green Budgeting training in 23 Member States. It highlights resources and opportunities that facilitate the implementation of green budgeting among Member States: the willingness to exchange on good practices with peers, EU requirements to develop climate and environmental strategies which provide context for green budgeting, and the uptake of outcome-responsive budgeting in several countries. This report also points out challenges and suggests options to circumvent them to ensure that green budgeting is implemented in a robust manner, is nationally owned, and effectively serves as a decision making tool to align budgets with national climate and environmental objectives.
