Uruguay has recently put in place a number of sectoral and intersectoral strategies that contribute towards SDG implementation, although an official planning framework linking to the SDGs is yet to be developed. The main goal of the INFF is to create an ecosystem that enables private, public and international cooperation sectors to finance and implement transformative strategies for SDG acceleration. To achieve this, the INFF will work on four key interlinked areas, each one helping to organise the actors, capacities and governance of a development financing ecosystem.
The four interlinked areas are: (i) awareness raising and capacity building essential to shifting perceptions; (ii) creation of dialogue spaces to enable a shift in culture, attitudes and collaboration contributing towards Uruguay’s sustainable development agenda; (iii) development and testing of investment vehicles that address the financing needs, levels of risk, size and investment periods of both investors and projects alike; and (iv) developing and agreeing on a common reporting and accounting framework and data management protocols for the monitoring and reporting of impact and progress towards the SDGs.
