Assessment of Investment Projects for Public Finance

Finance for Jobs (F4J) team has organized a very informative workshop entitled “Assessment of Investment Projects for Public Finance” on Tuesday, September 04, 2018. The workshop focused on understanding the private sector projects eligibility for public financing due to various market failures. The workshop added value was introducing the Social Cost Benefit Analysis (SCBA) tool and how the government can utilize the SCBA in evaluating the impact of supporting private sector projects, including its reflection of the outcomes of job diagnosis. F4J team is currently using SCBA tool in ranking private sector job-creating investment proposals that have applied for F4J Investment Co-Financing Facility (ICF) grants. The workshop succeeded in building the know-how of utilizing the SCBA tool and related approaches of the representatives of the PA line ministries and private sector organizations and relevant NGOs.
