Collaborative Africa Budget Reform Initiative (CABRI) – Special issue of the OECD Journal on Budgeting


The co-operation between CABRI (the Collaborative Africa Budget Reform Initiative) and the OECD network of Senior Budget Officials (SBO) has resulted not only through the contributions made by the SBO at the CABRI seminar discussions, but also through providing insights on how a senior budget officials network can operate. One of CABRI's aims is to contribute to a common African resource base for African officials on public financial management in Africa.
