Watch webinar on PEFA and PEFA Climate


The webinar “PEFA and PEFA Climate: useful aspects for SAIs?”, held 14 March, is now available on the INTOSAI WGEA Youtube channel. The webinar discusses the Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) framework featuring presentations from Srinivas Gurazada (Head of PEFA Secretariat) and Holy-Tiana Rame (Senior Public Finance Specialist at PEFA).

The Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) framework assesses the status of a country’s public financial management (PFM) system by focusing on key aspects across the budget cycle. In 2020, PEFA released a supplementary framework, focusing on the extent to which a country’s PFM system is responsive to climate change. PEFA and PEFA Climate highlight that reliable and extensive external audit is an essential requirement for ensuring accountability and creating transparency in the use of public funds.

The webinar gives insight on:

  • How both frameworks focus on the important role of Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) in the PFM cycle, and
  • How SAIs may use PEFA and PEFA Climate in their work for better transparency and accountability.
