The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has aligned its socioeconomic development framework to the 2030 Agenda and ensured that the country’s SDG priorities are aligned with national and provincial policy and planning frameworks. However, high social inequality and the lack of resources and institutional capacity are hampering the prospects for achieving the SDGs and for inclusive development. Through the INFF, the DRC seeks to generate support for the country to unlock its development financing potential and accelerate progress towards the SDGs.
The INFF is designed to mobilise funding to achieve the SDGs by focusing on two major objectives: (1) establishing an expanded fiscal space through public policies and reforms that will enable the mobilisation of additional public resources and to invest them efficiently and effectively in priority sectors; and (2) establish a national SDG financing strategy supported by all stakeholders, in particular the private sector, and create an environment to increase private investment to accelerate the SDGs in the DRC.
