Background

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) comprise 37 UN member nations and 20 associate members of regional commissions, uniquely and unfortunately positioned at the forefront of multiple global crises including substantial barriers to accessing adequate financial support. Many SIDS countries are using the INFF approach to shape a more inclusive, sustainable and resilient financing ecosystem. 

Through country-led INFFs, governments develop a strategy to mobilise and align financing with national plans and climate priorities, considering all dimensions of sustainability and risk management, and broadening participation in the design, delivery and monitoring of financing policies. 

INFFs were introduced in the Addis Ababa Action Agenda and are highlighted in the UN Secretary-General's SDG Stimulus as “an ideal tool for countries to set out their priorities and key financing policies”. The current INFF Facility members include UNDP, UNDESA, UNICEF, OECD, EU, Governments of Italy, Spain and Sweden.

About this event 

This side event will provide a platform for SIDS to showcase how they are using the INFF approach to strengthen financing for national objectives and implementation of the nationally determined contribution (NDC) and new Programme of Action (PoA). High-level government representatives and international partners will share in-depth knowledge and practical experiences of using the INFF approach to scale public and private support for SIDS financing needs and the technical assistance required to support SIDS in developing inclusive, sustainable and resilient pathways. It will highlight how the INFF Facility is scaling up support for SIDS-developing INFFs.

This side event, jointly organized by INFF Facility, UNDP, UNDESA and OECD, is scheduled for May 29, 2024, from 8:00 am to 9:30 am Atlantic Standard Time (AST) at the SIDS4 Conference Venue in St. John's, Antigua and Barbuda.

This is an in-person event for participants with existing access to SIDS4.
