The SDG financing gap in Uzbekistan is substantial. The country needs to spend an additional 8.7 percent of its GDP by 2030 to reach SDG targets in health, education and infrastructure.
The INFF aims to accelerate the attainment of the SDGs in Uzbekistan through a more efficient, transparent and results-oriented use of public financial resources, as well as a better coordinated and integrated use of public and private resources in social sectors, with a specific focus on the inclusion of women and vulnerable groups.
The INFF will support the achievement of the SDGs at many different levels and through various impact chains. It is providing a mechanism for improving the coherence of sustainable development financing policies as well as strengthening internal and external resource mobilisation to ensure adequate quality of socio-economic programmes.
