Implementing the Integrated National Financing Framework for Cameroon to Unlock, Leverage and Catalyze Resources to Accelerate SDG Achievement for Inclusive Growth
The Joint Programme (JP) supports the Government of Cameroon in rolling out the Integrated National Financing Framework (INFF), which is critical to identifying integrated financing solutions to support its National Development Strategy 2020-2030 and the SDGs Decade of Action. A particular focus will be placed on the tracking of public expenditures in the social sectors with the Equity for Development initiative to better estimate and quantify the proportion that actually reaches the final providers. Through the improved collection and use of gender data, the programme will also promote the national Gender Responsive Budgeting.
Public and private resources are currently not channelled to support the SDGs and public investment is often ineffective, while slower and non-inclusive growth is another bigger challenge in Cameroon. The new National Development Strategy 2020-2030 (NDS) is fully aligned to the SDGs and envisages actions to promote inclusive growth. It aims to place Cameroon on the path of Newly Industrialized Countries (NICs) and this JP is to contribute to SDG 17 by mobilizing resources to advance the rest of the 16 Goals. Beyond the approach of being the financing strategy of the NDS, the underlying approach of INFF is to mobilize substantial resources into SDG accelerators for Cameroon.
