Official launch of the 2024 Building Public Finance Capabilities in Africa Programme

17 April 2024
Joana for BPFC launch

We just launched our 2024 edition of our flagship programme, the Building Public Finance Capabilities (BPFC) in Africa programme. This year, we have the pleasure of welcoming two country-teams for the first time in the programme : Kenya and Mauritius. They will be joined by country-teams from Guinea-Conakry and Côte d'Ivoire.

The BPFC programme stands in contrast with traditional approaches to Public Financial Management (PFM) reform, which primarily focus on technical fixes and have had mixed results. Our programme takes the view that PFM reform does not lend itself to a one-size-fits-all approach and requires the careful management of political and administrative constraints together with a deep understanding of the local context. As such, the BPFC programme puts teams of government practitioners at the centre stage and equips them with an approach that drives incremental change and build their own capabilities. Locally identified PFM problems are tackled through a structured year long action-oriented programme based on the problem-driven iterative adaptation (PDIA) approach.

Let the journey begin!
