Our workCapable finance ministries

Managing public finances with integrity and in a transparent, accountable and effective way is the indispensable basis for good financial governance and a cornerstone of sustainable economic and social development in Africa. In every country, a central player in the management of public finances is a finance ministry. CABRI maintains that a functional PFM system needs a functioning ministry of finance. This means that officials have or learn the skills they need, are given clear roles and responsibilities, and have demonstrable organisational and implementation capabilities, including habits of critical reflection, organisational learning and adaption.
