Inclusive Growth and Structural Policies

These courses, presented by the IMF Institute, cover issues which have recently gained prominence, including energy subsidies, inclusive growth, managing natural resources, regional integration, and vulnerability diagnostics.

Intro

This online course, presented jointly by the Institute for Capacity Development and the Fiscal Affairs, Middle East and Central Asia, and Asia and Pacific Departments, builds on extensive cross-country analysis and hands-on experience in design of technical assistance and subsidy reform to make recommendations on how best to reduce energy subsidies.

The course introduces the concept of energy subsidies – their definition and measurement – and reviews their economic, social, and environmental implications. It also presents toolkits to assess the distributional effects of alternative subsidy reform scenarios and to design a fuel pricing mechanism. Finally, the course reviews what works best in energy subsidy reform and illustrates successes and failures in terms of particular countries.

Advanced

This course, presented by the Institute for Capacity Development, complements the Macroeconomic Diagnostics (MDS) course by enhancing participants’ ability to assess fiscal, financial, and external vulnerabilities in an integrated fashion, using several diagnostic tools to capture tail risks.

The main objective of this course, presented by the Institute for Capacity Development, is to broaden participants’ understanding of economic, monetary, and financial integration. Drawing on theory and on case studies from experiences in several regions, the course covers requirements for economic and monetary integration; trade, financial, and monetary integration; costs and benefits of the integration process; and political economy aspects of integration.
 
Workshops are designed to deepen participants’ knowledge of specific issues that may emerge in economic and monetary integration. Participants use case studies with country data to make assessments and are required to deliver their conclusions in short presentations.
