Capacity Development is closely integrated with the IMF’s surveillance and lending activities, and is one of our core mandates. Through these activities, we are in continuous dialog with our partners and maintain close contact with all stakeholders.
Our exceptional in-house expertise, focused approach and integrated methodology enable us to deliver the highest value capacity development. And with a global presence, we are strategically placed to respond to countries’ needs quickly and effectively. This approach delivers results and provides our partners tremendous visibility and opportunities for engagement with beneficiary countries.
We deliver capacity development through an integrated matrix based on a network of regional centers overlaid with support from thematic trust funds, as well as bilateral arrangements with partners. Through our Regional Technical Assistance Centers (RTACs), Regional Training Centers (RTCs), online and headquarters-based training, and bilateral partnerships, the IMF’s reach is global and provides targeted expertise where it is most needed. The RTACs and RTCs have tailored approaches to assist member countries in each region. All centers rely on IMF and partner funding, with our partners playing an active role in the governance of the centers.
