Aligning Policy and Financing with SDGs Towards an Integrated National Financing Framework in Kazakhstan
This Joint Programme (JP) will support the Government of Kazakhstan in aligning policy and financing with SDGs towards adopting an Integrated National Financing Framework (INFF). This will be achieved by operationalizing the priority reforms required to implement an INFF. As such, the JP will build authorities’ capacity to scale up their ongoing efforts to build the enabling environment and the supporting ecosystems for increasing the impact of the different forms of financial resources towards achieving the SDGs in the country.
The programme will result in accelerating progress towards the SDGs by increasing SDG financing, including inclusive Micro, Small $ Medium Enterprizes financing and climate finance, as well as safeguarding fiscal space for social expenditures, paying attention to gender-responsive planning and budgeting and ensuring that vulnerable population groups, especially children and youth, are not left behind. Increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of public spending through developing a holistic SDG financing strategy and better aligning and integrating planning and budgeting within a fully nationalized SDG Monitoring Framework at all government levels is planned as part of the programme.
