Guatemala

With support from the UN Joint SDG Fund, Guatemala will continue the development of its INFF to support the government’s national strategy to combat chronic malnutrition.

The overall objective of the INFF is to support the improvement of public finances in Guatemala. Specifically, the aim is to promote the medium-term sustainability of the Great National Crusade for Nutrition (GCNN), the government’s national strategy to combat chronic malnutrition announced in early 2020. The strategy targets three main populations: (1) children under 5 years of age; (2) women and girls; and (3) rural and indigenous peoples living in poverty and extreme poverty. 

Work areas included under the INFF will include: (a) determining the cost of the GCNN including all interventions; (b) identifying the GCNN's financing gap in relation to the timeframe of the Food and Security Strategic Plan; and (c) developing recommendations for mobilising public and private financial resources and establishing partnerships. The anticipated outcome is that, by 2021, the INFF process will produce a costing tool grounded in result-based management to strengthen multi-year budget formulation and execution processes in order to promote the medium-term sustainability of the GCNN.
