In April 2019, seven teams from Benin, Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Mali and Rwanda, embarked in the Building PFM Capabilities Programme to tackle a locally nominated public finance problem. After having deconstructed the problem and identified entry points, teams have been through an iterative and adaptive learning process, which entailed engagements with key stakeholders and gathering further evidence and perspectives on this problem.
The team from the Ministry of Budget in Guinea identified the pressing problem of weak linkages between budget execution and national priorities in the country and discerned a series of contributing factors that they have been working on over several months. This is a video that they had prepared on their journey. The teams met again in Tanzania on December 9-11 for the Peer Review Seminar to assess their progress since April 2019.
