In response to the 2030 Agenda, many countries have shown renewed interest in national development strategies. Yet, most strategies do not have concrete financing plans to fund their implementation. Integrated national financing frameworks (INFFs) provide a framework for financing national sustainable development priorities and the SDGs at the country level.
Integrated National Financing Frameworks
In the Addis Agenda, countries agreed to use Integrated National Financing Frameworks (INFFs) to support nationally owned sustainable development strategies. A country’s sustainable development strategy lays out what needs to be financed. INFFs spell out how the national strategy will be financed and implemented.
INFFs help countries to increase and better align financing with national sustainable development priorities. They are holistic, bringing together all types of finance – public, private, domestic, international – and helping enhance their coherence and alignment to medium- and long- term sustainable development. INFFs allow countries to navigate an increasingly complex financing landscape, streamline the wide variety of tools offered by the international community and formulate risk-informed financing strategies to support recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
More than 70 countries worldwide are in the process of designing and implementing INFFs, with support from the international community.
