The overall aim of Benin’s INFF is to align national development planning with the national budget. Building on its development finance assessment, the Government of Benin is identifying reforms for better planning, budgeting and monitoring of public and private investments to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of public expenditures and widen the fiscal space.
The Steering Committee of the Growth and Sustainable Development Program under the national development plan is overseeing INFF implementation. The government is facilitating technical assistance, capacity development, and systems strengthening for stakeholders within national planning, programming, and budgeting processes. As a result, the INFF will help Benin mobilise more resources and align the way money is invested with national development priorities and the SDGs.
