The Public Expenditure Management Peer Assisted Learning (PEMPAL) creates a network of public expenditure management professionals in various governments in the Europe and Central Asia (ECA) region. These professionals benchmark their PEM systems against one another and pursue opportunities for ‘peer’ learning, increasingly understood to enhance knowledge transfer.

PEMPAL work is organized in 3 Communities of Practice (COPs): 

Budget Community is a community of main budgetary heads of Ministries of finance from the European and Central Asian region.

Our learning activities are to learn from and with each other through community-oriented learning activities, and to hear about the practical experience of other countries.

We focus our activities on challenges in implementing reform initiatives in treasury and on issues that are of high professional interest to our members.
