Good financial governance
German development cooperation takes a holistic approach towards public financial management called Good Financial Governance (GFG), which encompasses normative and political economy aspects alongside technical PFM measures and considers core public finance institutions as well as sector ministries.
To promote this approach in development cooperation and facilitate its integration in sector reforms, GIZ commissioned GFA to develop a modular training course on Good Financial Governance targeting development advisors working in various sectors, e.g. Health, Education or Water and Sanitation. The main objectives of the GFG trainings were to enhance general understanding of the GFG concept and support the analysis of challenges related to financial governance in different sectors. Finally, the participants of the training were expected to be enabled to integrate the GFG concept into their sectoral work.
