The INFF will support the Government of Rwanda to ensure fiscal sustainability, promote stronger policy coherence for sustainable development, and provide the necessary tools to reach national priorities and achieve the SDGs. The INFF will help to engage the private sector in driving Rwanda’s economic development by supporting the development of tools and guidelines to align private sector investments to national priorities and the SDGs.
In addition, the INFF aims to support Rwanda in mobilising a significant amount of resources by piloting innovative financing instruments, such as a blended finance facility, social bonds and a green bank. As a result, the INFF will contribute to the promotion of effective public, public-private and civil society partnerships.
The INFF will strengthen approaches to mainstream gender-responsive, climate-sensitive and pro-poor planning, budgeting, and innovative financing strategies. The activities will promote citizen engagement and participation in decision-making processes, especially in decentralized planning and budgeting, and will improve transparency.
