The main focus of AFW2 is to provide TA support in West African countries that are not covered by AFW. With this Regional Center located in Accra on the 4th Floor of the World Bank Group Building AFW2 is governed by a Steering Committee (SC) composed of representatives of AFW2 countries and development partners. The Committee approves the workplan and priorities for the coming period.
Staffing of AFW2 is a composition of member countries’ TA needs. The size and composition of the team of resident experts is tailored to those needs and priorities of participating countries. Currently, the center is providing TA in the following areas: Revenue Administration and Taxation, Public Financial Management, Macroeconomic Statistics, Monetary Operations and Payments System and Banking Supervision. The Center currently has seven resident advisors. The activities undertaken by the center follow a detailed workplan, which is revised and approved by the Steering Committee. While it provides the general guidelines for the center’s work, the plan is applied flexibly and could change according to emerging needs and requests. The center is financed by the IMF, multilateral and bilateral donors
