2015 ICGFM Winter Training Conference CALL FOR SPEAKERS

Call for Speakers/Panels/Papers

TRANSFORMING DEVELOPMENT FINANCE, PFM'S ROLE IN MEETING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

ICGFM Winter Training Conference, December 7 - 9, 2015

Washington, DC USA


The international community is in the midst of elaborating on a new framework to promote sustainable development, the success of which will at least partly depend on good policies, credible institutions, and the better and more effective use of available resources to catalyze and finance growth.  The options available to finance growth are positively correlated to the strength of a country’s public financial management (PFM) policies, supporting framework and processes, and underlying capacity.

ICGFM solicits proposals for speakers/panels/papers that address the relationship between PFM and its role in building the foundation for success to meet the sustainable development goals for its upcoming Winter Training Conference to be held at the International Monetary Fund in Washington, DC, USA.  Please visit our website for more information:  www.icgfm.org.

TRANSFORMACIÓN DEL DESARROLLO DE FINANZAS, LA FUNCIÓN DE LA PFM PARA ALCANZAR UN DESARROLLO SOSTENIBLE

Conferencia de capacitación de invierno de ICGFM, del 7 al 9 de diciembre de 2015

Washington, DC, EE. UU.


La comunidad internacional se encuentra en medio de la elaboración de un nuevo marco para promover el desarrollo sostenible, cuyo éxito dependerá al menos en parte de las buenas políticas, instituciones creíbles y el uso mejor y más efectivo de los recursos disponibles para catalizar el crecimiento financiero.  Las opciones disponibles para financiar el crecimiento se correlacionan positivamente con la fortaleza de las políticas de gestión financiera pública (PFM) de un país, el marco y sus procesos de respaldo y su capacidad subyacente.


ICGFM solicita propuestas de oradores/paneles/artículos que cubran la relación entre la PFM y su función en la construcción de las bases para el éxito para cumplir las metas de desarrollo sostenible para su próxima Conferencia de Capacitación de Invierno que se realizará en la sede central del Fondo Monetario Internacional en Washington, DC, EE. UU.  Por favor visite nuestro sitio web para más información: www.icgfm.org.

TRANSFORMER LE FINANCEMENT DU DÉVELOPPEMENT, LE RÔLE DE LA GFP POUR ATTEINDRE LES OBJECTIFS DE DÉVELOPPEMENT DURABLE


Conférence de formation d'hiver d'ICGFM, du 7 au 9 décembre 2015

Washington DC, États-Unis


La communauté internationale élabore actuellement un nouveau cadre pour promouvoir le développement durable, dont la réussite dépendra au moins en partie de bonnes politiques, d'institutions crédibles, et de l'utilisation plus efficace des ressources disponibles afin de catalyser et de financer la croissance. Les options disponibles pour financer la croissance sont positivement corrélées à la force des politiques de gestion des finances publiques (GFP), au cadre et aux processus d'appui, et aux capacités sous-jacentes d'un pays.


ICGFM sollicite des propositions de conférenciers/panels/documents qui traitent de la relation entre la GFP et son rôle dans l'établissement de la base permettant d'atteindre les objectifs de développement durable pour sa prochaine Conférence de formation d'hiver qui se tiendra au Fonds monétaire international à Washington DC aux États-Unis.  S'il vous plaît visitez notre site Web pour plus d'informations: www.icgfm.org.

The International Journal on Governmental Financial Management


Public financial reform appears to be entering a new practical-oriented phase especially in the public sector accounting and budgeting field. While accounting and budgeting scholars have exerted great efforts in the last three decades aiming at reforming and developing public sector accounting and budgeting, these efforts are still of little value to the public sector accounting and budgeting practice. Therefore, the aim of the new phase is to foster communication between the accounting researchers and practitioners, which in turn leads to improving the accounting and budgeting practices and facilitates the work of practitioners. This issue of the Journal takes the initiative of dealing with articles that enhance and improve the accounting and budgeting practice.
-Prof. Dr. Hassan Ourda, Editor

If you would like to participate in such discussions, please start thinking about contributions for the next issue of this Journal, participating in the ICGFM blog, and/or attending future ICGFM events.  (See submission details in the journal.)
