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.
