Course Description

In the first part of the course, economists from the IMF will introduce the definition and measurement of subsidies, and then describe the economic, social, and environmental implications of subsidies. The second part of the course has two principal purposes: first, to review what works best in energy subsidy reform, in light of country experiences globally; and second, to illustrate successes and failures in particular country contexts by summarizing some case studies.

Whether you are a civil servant working on economic issues for your country or simply interested in better understanding issues related to energy subsidies, this course will provide hands-on training on the design of successful reforms of energy subsidies.

You are welcome to join us in this exciting course!

Energy Subsidy Reform is offered by the IMF with financial support from the Government of Belgium.

My passion for energy study has just been motivated further. I am so interested in Energy professional hence when I so this course definitely I had to enroll as it will blend well with Energy Risk Professional currently under construction. I believe the tutors are well vested in this field therefore am looking forward to learn a great deal of the subject.

Amusing presentation. Regardless of the personal motivations, the course points out an exit towards a competitive, challenging, low tax, corporate driven and blind-subsidy free market of utilities. This is a tool aimed to those countries in recession or downturn...

The course clearly has an agenda promoting removal of energy subsidies. In that sense it is like watching an IMF infomercial. If you want to hear the IMF view of the subject, take the course. If you want to know why your government is jacking up energy prices in some controlled markets like electricity, you'll find out why.
