A Review of Experience in Implementing Medium-Term Expenditure Frameworks in a PRSP Context: A Synthesis of Eight Country Studies

Nov 24, 2003

CAPE has completed a cross-country comparative study of Medium-Term Expenditure Frameworks (MTEFs) in eight African countries and one European country. A synthesis paper discusses the results of case studies conducted in Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ghana, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, and Albania. MTEF development in each country is characterized as maturing, coming together, or struggling. The CAPE website features the individual papers from the 9 country case studies, and a Good Practice Guidance Note that was prepared to assist policy makers and donors in the implementation of an MTEF in the context of national poverty reduction strategies.
