Warren Krafchik

Director, International Budget Partnership (IBP)

Warren Krafchik is the Director of the International Budget Partnership (IBP) and has been involved with the IBP for over 10 years, assisting civil society organizations in Africa, Latin America, and Asia to monitor government budgets. IBP works with independent organizations in over 100 countries by providing financial assistance, training and technical support, and designing collaborative research and networking programs. Krafchik joined the IBP in 2001 after nine years at the Institute for Democracy in South Africa (Idasa), one of Africa’s strongest think-tanks, where he founded the Budget Information Service (BIS) in 1995. The BIS was one of the first institutions to pioneer independent monitoring of government budgeting, with a particular emphasis on how these budgets affect disadvantaged groups. These methods have been adapted by civil society and governments around the world. Krafchik started his working life as a lecturer in macro-economics at the University of Cape Town where he received MA, awarded with distinction. He is the author of numerous publications on the role of the civil society, legislatures, and Supreme Audit Institutions in budget accountability.
