Côte d'Ivoire - Public Expenditure Management and Financial Accountability Review - PEMFAR (Finalized in November 2008)


This joint report is the fruit of the permanent dialogue and coordination between the Government of Côte d’Ivoire and the major multilateral technical and financial partners in the area of public expenditure management. It was prepared under the leadership of the World Bank with the participation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the African Development Bank (ADB) and the European Commission (EC). The report has a triple objective. First of all, in terms of the Government, it is intended to encourage the development and implementation of a Government Action Plan for improving Public Expenditure Management. Secondly, it aims at establishing a concerted framework for assessing the results of medium-term reforms. Finally, it is also intended to motivate the specific interest of the technical and financial partners in the areas covered by the review with the goal of defining jointly with the Government a coordinated assistance framework for multilateral and bilateral partners. In this regard, it is commendable that the Ivorian authorities have decided to launch a new PEMFAR review within 2 - 3 years to assess progress achieved, establish a new reference situation, define a new time-bound performance program and set the framework for actions to be carried out in collaboration with development partners.
