Haiti in Crisis: A National Consultation on Reform Priorities and Financing Options for Accelerated SDG Achievement
The Joint Programme (JP) will ensure a broad-based national consultation in defining strategies, priorities and goals, as well as regular exchange with other key partners from the private, the non-governmental, or financial sector. The final result of this programme will be an ambitious yet realistic financing action plan for Haiti, in support of an objectively reprioritized SDG strategy which includes a convincing reform agenda and fully endorsed through a national consultation process. With high poverty and incapacity to satisfy basic needs and social service access, this programme thus carries additional importance as a possible contributor to renewed cohesion building in Haiti.
To reach the set objectives, the programme intends to achieve following outcomes: (a) national ownership for strategy, action plan and reforms initiated or flagged under the project; (b) a comprehensive, ambitious and well-informed financing plan fully aligned with SDGs; (c) an updated SDG Strategy based on realistic finance mobilization scenarios; and (d) institutionalized capacity to efficiently deliver the agreed SDG – including its financing. Financing mobilization, in terms of enhanced access to financing not only for Government but also for - and from - private sector investors and for citizens at large will be geared in a balanced manner to both basic needs and to sustainable growth related SDGs.
