The INFF process will strengthen Malawi’s financing architecture to accelerate the 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.
Malawi focuses on the inclusivity of marginalised people from rural areas at the core of its financing strategy. To incorporate the financing needs and opportunities at the local level, the government conducted both the national level Development Finance Assessment and Local Level Finance Assessments. As a result, the financing strategy is building on a consolidated INFF roadmap, connecting the national and sub-national financing reforms.
