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.

Key themes of this conference include:

Developing policy framework to support resource mobilization and expenditure
Financing a transformative development agenda (domestic, public, or private funds)
Strengthening domestic resource mobilization/tax administration
Curbing Illicit behaviors and financial flows
Promoting high standards in procurement
Making efficient and effective use of government spending
Delivering accountable programs at the subnational level
Strengthening public sector pay, performance and ethics
Developing and monitoring evidenced based programs
Strengthening independent oversight organizations, including supreme audit institutions
Deploying enabling and diagnostic technologies
Country case studies
