Financing SDGs in Ecuador and targeting chronic child malnutrition
The Joint Programme proposes contributing towards a better financing architecture for sustainable development in Ecuador and leveraging resources from the public and private sectors, particularly to counter the problem of chronic child malnutrition. It is targeted towards structuring an Integrated National Financing Framework (INFF) that will allow a more appropriate financial framework for sustainable development, contributing, as such, towards inclusive and sustainable economic growth, while meeting the requirements of the principle of “Leaving No One Behind.”
To reach the aim, two outcomes are targeted: a) the design and the implementation of an INFF for sustainable development and b) applying the INFF to chronic child malnutrition (CCM) reduction policy. Both are closely and mutually related: the analysis undertaken at a macro level will provide elements for the design of specific tools to diminish CCM. In turn, the concrete application of the INFF to reduce CCM will provide feedback to the general proposal of the INFF.
