The FFC-PEP school offers training programs on techniques and tools for the analysis economic policy. It includes distance learning, training workshop and technical support components. Training is offered on poverty monitoring, measurement and analysis, on one hand, and on modelling the impacts of macroeconomic policies and shocks, on the other hand. PEP school is an annual training program organized by the PEP network in partnership with southern institutions. Scientific expertise is provided by PEP resource persons. The training aims to:

  • Enhance local capacity in monitoring, measuring and analyzing poverty;
  • Improve the understanding of the poverty impacts of macroeconomic policy and shocks through training  in the theoretical foundations and empirical implementation of their analysis;
  • Contribute to the design of effective national growth and poverty reduction strategies. 

The "Financial and Fiscal Commission" (FFC) in Midrand, South Africa, has taken the lead in establishing this initiative in southern Africa in collaboration with other institutions. The FFC is an independent objective impartial and unbiased constitutional advisory institution.  Its research and recommendation program aims at enhancing the development impact of public resources through the financial and fiscal system in South Africa.

In May 2010 FFC is launching the third year of PEP school on the theme of modelling the micro impacts of macroeconomic policies and shocks. Please note that this third edition of the PEP school will be in English without translation.
