Description: Developing countries face various policy, institutional, and operational challenges due to weak debt management capacity and lack of efficient debt markets. The Government Debt Management Performance Assessment Tool (DeMPA) provides indicators for assessing debt management performance in LICs. It is based on the Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) methodology for public financial management and sound practices in government debt management. The DeMPA is useful in conducting country dialogue, guiding the design of reform programs, enhancing donor harmonization, and monitoring performance over time. The course aims to provide an understanding of the rationale, scope, coverage, and application of the DeMPA Tool. The course format includes presentations, hands-on case studies, and a panel discussion of an operational application.

Target Audience: Country Economists and other implementers
