Fiscal Literacy is a Will have to for Actors
In my early encounters with each equally seasoned and rookies in financing for progress, documenting and reporting on the outreach and conversation, it became clear that there are enormous misunderstandings on each equally sides of the aisle (donors-purchasers and recipients) … Special to sub -Saharan Africa, and to a bigger extent other elements in the atmosphere, when expectations are not communicated, roles left to assumption, this can jeopardize the “romance” in these a framework.
