The importance of sound governance of government expenditure in promoting development is widely recognized. Where transparency and accountability are lacking, spending may be inefficient and wasteful, fail to match the needs and priorities of a country's population, or be squandered in corruption. Due to the sensitivity and secrecy associated with the military sector, military spending is often the least transparent area of the government budget. Opaque military budgeting practices are a near global problem, affecting regions more or less intensely around the world.1
