    Course Description

    This course, presented by the Institute for Capacity Development, explains how to diagnose macroeconomic imbalances and correct them through a coordinated set of adjustment policies.

    • Analyze the baseline macroeconomic scenario, to understand economic and financial developments, and diagnose macroeconomic imbalances. 
    • Identify economic vulnerabilities and risks in the baseline scenario and articulate how policy measures address them. 
    • Prepare an adjustment scenario that reflects the policy measures and their macroeconomic impact. 
    • Identify further policy goals and measures that will be incorporated into a medium-term framework.
