Establishment of an Integrated National Financing Framework for Sustainable Development in Uzbekistan
In Uzbekistan, a 2018 IMF assessment of spending required to reach SDGs in health, education, and infrastructure alone found that the country needs additional spending of roughly 8.7% of GDP by 2030. The expected result of the programme is that the attainment of SDGs in Uzbekistan will be accelerated thanks to more efficient, transparent and results-oriented use of public finance resources, as well as better coordinated and integrated use of public and private resources in social sectors, taking into account the specific needs of women.
The programme will support achievement of the SDGs at many different levels and through various impact chains. By establishing the Integrated National Financing Framework, the programme will help to provide a mechanism for improving the coherence of sustainable development financing policies as well as strengthen internal and external resource mobilization to ensure adequate quality of socio-economic programs. The outputs will be focusing on the areas that are identified as the most urgent – healthcare, social assistance and environment degradation – all three having the catalytic effect on one another and serving the common goal of poverty and inequality reduction and ultimately sustainable development of Uzbekistan.
