Monitoring, Analysis and Policy Methodology

MonitoringDFI has developed a comprehensive set of best practice guidelines to help countries monitor and analyse private capital flows. Country projects involve a complex sequence of tasks. They take as their starting point, an understanding of international BOP-related codes and standards relating to Foreign Assets and Liabilities (FAL). From this, countries can design or adapt questionnaires with built in quality controls; identify and use complementary non-survey data sources to fill gaps or crosscheck data; use software for storing, checking and analysing data; up-rate data for any gaps; prepare time series, and higher frequency estimates; and finally produce detailed analysis and policy recommendations directed at key stakeholders.

These pages link to materials that support National Taskforces in each area. Materials are divided into:
