The Global Report presents trends in public financial management (PFM) using Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) data. The report—which is only available online—contains data visualizations accompanied by short analyses and country examples. It gives an overview of the methodology used for assessing PFM performance, highlights key trends in PFM across seven key areas of the budget cycle, and presents ideas on how the data analysis and findings could influence future research on PFM. The report contains an overview of PEFA assessment findings from 2019 and presents four case studies: Argentina, Ethiopia, Ukraine, and West Bank and Gaza. It also showcases key findings from the initial application of the recently launched PEFA framework for assessing gender responsive public financial management.
