Building upon the momentum of the current wave of reforms in Armenia, triggered by the “velvet revolution” in 2018, the INFF process aims to (i) help the Government of Armenia create clear links between policies, planning and budgeting processes; and (ii) deploy innovative and evidence-driven mechanisms to leverage partnerships and multiple sources of finance towards three priority areas: climate change, food security and human capital.
The INFF will contribute towards the operationalisation of the Armenian Transformation Strategy and sectoral strategies and will strengthen the financing architecture for effective policy implementation. The INFF focus will be on increasing the understanding of national financing needs and gaps and channelling resources towards sectors that disproportionately benefit vulnerable groups, including women. Investments in these sectors will have a knock-on effect on other sectors, thus promoting sustainable development across all dimensions of the 2030 Agenda.
