Brief Description

This Joint Programme seeks to strengthen the Malawi’s financing architecture to accelerate implementation of the SDG aligned Malawi Growth and Development Strategy III in two parallel and coordinated ways. The two streams of intervention, the top-down establishment of Malawi’s INFF and the bottom-up strengthening of the local level Public Finance Management, service delivery and financial accountability systems, will converge and connect in the INFF Monitoring and Evaluation Framework.


First, the programme establishes an Integrated National Financing Framework (INFF) which will be used to mobilize and catalyse resources and investments, public and private, to fund its development plans and deliver the SDGs. More importantly, the INFF will provide the Government with a clear assessment set of options and of policy interventions to finance the unlocking of the country’s development potential. Second, the programme will seek to improve the financing structures supporting essential social services at local level by investing in evidence generation on the costs and funding gaps.
