Public Finance Management (PFM) reform programmes are often characterised by replicating best practice reforms that offer solutions deemed universally applicable. It is increasingly recognised that reforms are most effective when a problem is defined by local agents, and the corresponding solution emerges from a process that considers a country’s administrative, political and economic realities.

Over the next eight months, seven country teams from the Central African Republic, Benin, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Mali, and Rwanda will embark on an action-learning journey to tackle locally nominated PFM problems. The team will gather in Rwanda for a framing workshop, to learn about the Problem Driven Iterative Adaptation (PDIA) approach, by i) constructing a real problem statement; (ii) identifying the main causes and sub-causes of the problem; (iii) agreeing on the immediate actions to be taken; and (iv) designating specific responsibilities to team members
