Sustainable Financing for the 2030 Agenda Through Viable INFF in Cook Islands, Niue and Samoa
The Joint Programme will build on developing financing strategies and operationalizing the Integrated National Financing Framework (INFFs) for Cook Islands, Niue and Samoa to provide these countries with opportunities to improve the management of financial flows and mobilize new, diverse and catalytic financial instruments to accelerate progress of the Agenda 2030. The development of a viable development finance strategy and architecture, aligned with the national development priorities and the SDGs through the INFF, will increase efficiency and effectiveness of all investments in the acceleration of SDG attainment through public, private, blended, international and/or regional vertical instruments in Cook Islands, Niue and Samoa.
Aligning annual budgets and SDG-related expenditure with medium term revenue strategies and expenditure frameworks, and deepening engagement between policy makers and private sector within the planning process through the INFF will lead to the availability of new development finance and increased reach and impact of SDG investments. This will cause a virtuous spiral, whereby success draws increased investment of resources into human wellbeing and capabilities, which further underpins the social contract and accelerates sustainable development. At the end of the joint programme, gender responsive financing strategies will be developed.
