Online PFM Conference: ODI Event Being Streamed Live this Week

Posted by Ryan Flynn

ODI-CAPE
The Overseas Development Institute (ODI) is one of the UK's leading independent think tanks on international development and humanitarian issues. It is organizing a major conference this week: the 2013 CAPE Conference: budgeting in the real world. CAPE stands for Centre for Aid and Public Expenditure, which is hosted by ODI. It aims to shape and drive the agenda for international development assistance, as well as efficient and effective public spending for development at the country level.

The conference will focus on PFM and budgeting in developing countries. The whole two-days (13 & 14 November) will be streamed live online, and questions fielded through social media (#CAPE2013) will be answered by speakers and panellist. You can register to attend here.

Starting from the premise that national budgets don’t always do what they say they will, the conference will grapple with two overarching questions:

  1. How does budgeting and public financial management really work in practice?
  2. What can reformers do to strengthen budgets?

The line-up includes a number of substantial figures from the world of PFM. The IMF’s Antoinette Sayeh, Director of Africa Department and former Minister of Finance of Liberia, will be headlining, along with Luisa Diogo, former Prime Minister of Mozambique. Allen Schick, no stranger to this blog, and Matt Andrews will also present their latest thinking.
