Budgeting and public expenditures

Assessing fiscal risks through long-term budget projections


As part of the comparative analysis of sustainable budget policy, a study was undertaken on long-term budget projections. A preliminary report was discussed at the Senior Budget Officials meeting  of 5-6 June 2006 in Sydney.

The final report (published in the OECD Journal on Budgeting, Volume 6, Number 1, 2006) describes a bottom-up approach to measure future fiscal challenges, and discusses the main reasons for uncertainty and how to handle them.
