The CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness presents the INFF: Ambitions and Concerns, a paper that presents an overview of the Integrated National Financing Frameworks (INFF).
INFF refers to a country-owned financial framework to strengthen planning processes and support sustainable development financing at the national level. By capturing the entire range of financing instruments and policies available to countries, it offers a space where national governments can review their options to finance their own plans and align financing strategies to long-term national priorities. It can also help prioritise financing policy actions and overcome existing impediments to financing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). INFFs are thus seen as the platform to operationalise the Addis Ababa Action Agenda at the national level.
This document introduces the INFFs’ role in financing sustainable development, as well as a civil society perspective on the instrument. It also locates the INFF in the context of Covid-19, and provides a glimpse of the INFF Knowledge Platform as well as a case study of financing sustainable development using the INFF, in Colombia. Finally, it discusses an area of concern, where country ownership might be put at risk with, for instance, the pervasive role of the international community especially the International Financing Institutions (IFIs) in the INFFs.
INFF: Ambitions and Concerns was authored by Marta Ceriani, through a project led by CPDE International CSOs sector’s Luca de Fraia.
