This INFF process will strengthen Malawi’s financing architecture to accelerate implementation of the SDG-aligned Malawi Growth and Development Strategy III in two parallel and coordinated ways: (1) the top-down establishment of Malawi’s INFF; and (2) the bottom-up strengthening of the local-level public finance management, service delivery and financial accountability systems. The two streams of intervention will converge and connect in the INFF monitoring and evaluation framework.
The INFF will be used to mobilise and catalyse resources and investments, public and private, to fund its development plans and deliver the SDGs. Building on the development finance assessment (DFA), the INFF will provide the government with a clear set of assessment options and policy interventions to unlock the country’s development potential. The INFF will seek to improve financing structures in support of essential social service delivery at the local level through SDG costing and identification of funding gaps.
