    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. It covers the principal features of the four main macroeconomic sectors (real, fiscal, external, and monetary) and their interlinkages, highlighting both accounting and behavioral relationships and using data from a country case study.

    Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to: 

    • Create consistent macroeconomic baseline projections on the assumption that policies do not change, while respecting accounting and behavioral links among economic variables. 
    • 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.
