Lars M Andersson, together with Pavel Kochanov, is the author of a chapter on Pooled Financing Mechanisms. Pavel Kochanov is a senior subnational specialist at the International Finance Corporation (IFC). His primary area of expertise is credit and governance risks of subsovereign government entities globally. Pavel holds a Ph.D. in economics from Moscow State University.

The chapter written by Andersson and Kochanov is introduced as follows in the book: ”Chapter 6, by Lars M. Andersson and Pavel Kochanov, discusses pooled financing mechanisms in which a group of municipalities aggregate their borrowing needs and raise their total financing needs together on the capital market. The authors argue that this form of raising capital is especial­ly important for small to medium-sized cities to be able to access long-term and fairly priced debt.”
