Dr Biniam Bedasso on managing Public Finances: where does a quarter of the IMF’s Capacity Development Budget go?

8 January 2021

In this podcast, ERSA’s host speaks to Dr Biniam Bedasso about Public Finance Management, which plays a significant role in reducing inequality in an economy. You may be familiar with the Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) Program from 2001, but in this podcast, we look at the developments that have taken place since then to accommodate the distinct needs of developing countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. Managing the finances of a country is complicated to say the least, especially if an environment is plagued by corruption. Biniam unpacks CABRI’s PFM Capabilities framework and explains why Public Finance Management matters not only to the IMF or officials, but also to civilians. This podcast is sure to broaden your knowledge on what it means to problem solve in a complex world.
