Education Financial Planning in Asia Series

Education Financial Planning in Asia: Implementing Medium-Term Expenditure Framework series comprises 6 publications of case studies in 6 countries, namely; KoreaMongoliaNepalTajikistanThailand and Viet Nam.  

The Medium-Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) has been used in Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries for many years, but their history of use in developing countries is more recent. 

MTEF in the education sector aims to strengthen the link between policy, planning and budgeting. In Asia, many countries have introduced, or are planning to introduce MTEFs, but no studies had been conducted so far to document the experiences. 

The case studies conducted in the above listed countries aim to address this knowledge gap and provide real examples and practical information from which planners and policy makers in other countries can learn from the experiences and lessons on education financial planning and MTEF. It is hoped that this knowledge will strengthen national capacity in using MTEF.
