OPM contact

OPM were commissioned by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) to support the revision of Sida’s Financial Sector Development (FSD) guidelines. OPM produced a report outlining the major developments in FSD in low and middle income countries and analysed a range of development partners’ current practices in respect of theories, policies, and guidelines. In addition, OPM provided mapping and analysis of how Sida’s FSD focus could be incorporated within its overall thematic priorities. A workshop was held to discuss key findings from the report discussing both Sida’s future strategic focus and its knowledge management capability in this area.
