Accelerating Jordan’s Progress towards SDGs by Establishing Building Blocks of an Integrated Financing Framework
The socio-economic impact of COVID-19 on Jordan is expected to be massive, compounded by persistent regional instability, years of low growth and fiscal crisis. To meet its SDG priorities in the context of these challenges, Jordan aims to establish key building blocks of an Integrated National Finance Framework (INFF) with an initial focus on climate change and gender equality, both cross-cutting issues requiring integrated approaches towards SDG goals and targets. It also provides the ground for sustained and systemic change towards crisis preparedness and resilience of the economy crisis, while leaving no one behind.
The JP will work with the largest investment vehicles in Jordan, such as the Social Security Investment Fund (SSIF) and support the Government’s PPP Unit in aligning existing investments and investment pipelines to national SDG priorities leveraging cooperation with international financial institutions and development partners. Capacity building on impact measurement and management (IMM) and the Women’s Economic Empowerment Principles (WEP) for small and medium enterprises will help create an investment-ready pipeline. The programme will also engage with youth, particularly impacted by climate change and its repercussions on intergenerational equity, as well as other key stakeholders and target groups.
