This online course, jointly developed by the IMF and the WB and funded by the Debt Management Facility (DMF), is aimed at building capacity to develop a medium-term debt management strategy (MTDS), contributing to improved public debt management.
It explains the MTDS framework and provides comprehensive training on the accompanying analytical tool, MTDS AT.
The MTDS AT is useful for analyzing quantitatively the cost-risk characteristics of an existing debt portfolio, as well as the cost-risk trade-offs of alternative financing strategies. Participants are taught how to develop financing strategies by taking account of the composition of the existing debt portfolio, developments in key macroeconomic and market conditions, potential sources of financing, and linkages with broader medium-term macroeconomic framework, including debt sustainability.
All government officials are welcome to register. This course is particularly useful for officials from debt management offices, treasury departments, ministries of finance, ministries of economy, central banks, and other government officials responsible for providing advice or implementing debt management policies.
