From April 29 to May 20, 2021, an IMF/ARITAC team of experts conducted a technical assistance mission to Cameroon led by the Public Finance Department (FAD). The purpose of this assistance mission was to support the Cameroonian authorities in strengthening the budgetary and financial governance of the decentralization process, managing the associated risks, and improving financial relations between the state and the decentralized local authorities (DLA).

This mission was led by Mr. Jean Luc Helis, Senior Economist at the ADF. Given the current global situation, several meetings were held by videoconference with a panel of stakeholders based in the Central and Southwestern regions.

The objective of this mission was to collect information inherent to the implementation process of decentralization, the budgetary and financial management of the CTDs and to understand their interactions with the State in order to propose adequate measures and improve the governance of the CTDs.

It aims to support Cameroon in the implementation of financial decentralization.
