Senior federal and state officials consider fiscal mechanisms for Ethiopia’s federal government

The Forum of Federations provided technical support and resource persons for a series of high-level policy meetings and training sessions on fiscal federalism in Ethiopia from March 7-13, 2008. These events were organized by the House of Federation and supported by Forum expert Bob Searle, former chief executive of Australia’s Commonwealth Grants Commission and renowned expert on comparative fiscal decentralization. A series of training sessions provided an overview of fiscal federalism theory and comparative practice, including issues in design of revenue sharing formulas, including institutional arrangements. These sessions were followed by private meetings with senior officials, including H.E. Degefe Bula, Speaker of the House of Federation.
