Managing financial flows: the challenge of
governments
"Conscience is the knowledge that someone is
watching"
Neil Cole
Executive Secretary
Collaborative Africa Budget Reform Initiative
The things we think we know…
• MDGs (even) SDGs provide a useful input to national development plans , but
can not be the country plan. And country ownership is essential;
• Achievement of goals are not solely about levels of financing;
• Quality of spending will be crucial – VfM every step of the way;
• Meaningful dialogue based on trust and mutual-accountability needed;
• STRENGTHEN AND USE COUNTRY SYSTEMS, especially the BUDGET PROCESS;
• Put lots more money into the things that make a difference and lead to
sustainable growth;
• There are no miracle cures. And be modest and honest about what can be
achieved.

countries manage their
affairs.
Finance

"The tool is not simply
how much funds has
been allocated but
rather what it bought
and more , whether in
spending the funds,
we have actually
addressed the
unfreedoms that
come with poverty"
TM
And not everything
needs to be
described as an SDG
aligned programme,
but have clear
criteria.

Being ethical is to be…
Modest about what can be
achieved
(Do not claim that a once-off act of charity will eradicate poverty)
Honest about successes and
failures
(someone is watching)
