Many African countries struggle to mobilise sufficient revenues to fund the provision of basic public goods and services. There is urgent reform pressure at the administrative and the tax policy level to increase public revenues. Despite the international community’s efforts to support domestic revenue mobilisation (DRM), there is a lack of both technical and financial support in Africa to pilot innovative ideas in order to find new solutions to the persisting challenges of revenue mobilisation.
The DRM Innovation Fund seeks to fill that gap by providing flexible and quick funding for short-term innovative projects in African countries.
The Fund is facilitated by the International Tax Compact (ITC), an informal platform that aims to enhance domestic revenue mobilisation in partner countries, and to promote fair, efficient and transparent tax systems.
