Canadian funds for public sector reform

The Canadian government has promised $7.5 million to support the second phase of Mozambican public sector reform. The agreement to this effect (an addendum to a 2007 memorandum of understanding) was signed on 26 March by the Ministers of Planning and Development and of Public Service, Aiuba Cuereneia and Vitoria Diogo, and Canadian High Commissioner Philip Baker.

The money is paid into the common fund to support the public sector reform, the second phase of which runs from 2006 to 2011. The funds will be spent on developing the four priority areas of the reform, namely: professionalising the staff of the public administration, improvements in service provision, strengthening local government bodies, and good governance and the fight against corruption.

The common fund is also financed by Denmark, Britain, Sweden, Ireland, Norway, Italy, Holland, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the World Bank.

Implementation of the public sector reform cost $17 million in 2007, and the government expected to spend $14 million dollars in 2008.

The purpose of the common fund is to coordinate donor efforts to support implementation of the reforms under way, and to increase the predictability of funding.
