The American military, particularly the Army, plays a modest but significant role in helping the nations of Sub-Saharan Africa build regional security systems. Some of the most important U.S. efforts focus on assisting Africans as they improve their civil-military relations, strategic planning methods, and defense budgeting procedures. All of these are interlinked: stable civil-military relations and coherent strategic planning depend on a transparent budgeting process that builds consensus among military and civilian leaders, and ties the allocation of resources to strategic objectives, military missions, and threats. In this monograph, Martin Rupiya, Director of the University of Zimbabwea€™s Centre for Defence Studies, and Daniel Henk of the Air War College provide one of the first comprehensive studies of defense budgeting practices in Africa.
