External New Financing Strategy Training Materials

A comprehensive debt strategy includes an assessment of alternative new borrowings and grant inflows, focusing on how to mobilise the highest quality financing to support national development priorities.

Main tasks of national External New Financing Strategy Managers:

  • To review the Government’s external new financing policy and to define the donors/creditors which best fit government policy aims and whose assistance is therefore highest quality and priority for mobilisation
  • To analyse donor/creditor procedures and practices as they are implemented nationally and the implications for external assistance flows and their utilisation and to identify those donors/creditors whose procedures can be made more flexible for future external assistance.
  • To assess Government procedures and practices, within the context of the Paris indicators for aid effectiveness, and to assess Government’s capacity to fulfil the procedural demands of donors which do not use Government procedures.
  • To evaluate and prioritise donors and creditors on the basis of their policies and procedures
  • To design the appropriate new financing scenarios
  • To analyse the simulation results for future debt and new financing strategy purposes

The training materials for conducting a national debt and aid strategy workshop are comprised of the following for each of the technical areas:

  • training manual tasks, explaining how to conduct the relevant tasks and analyse them
  • training manual tables, to assist with the analysis and recording of outcomes in Excel spreadsheets
  • reference materials, providing more in-depth explanatory and background information, including on international best practices

The CBP workshop manual also contains the preliminary documents setting out the workshop prerequisites and sample timetable and plenary, scenario and results tasks which related to the plenary sessions for all technical groups. In addition, the CBP provides a Training for Trainers Guide which accompanies the DSA national strategy workshop manual.
