Financing has emerged as a key challenge in SDG implementation. Yet, a recent study found that 79 out of 107 national sustainable development plans are not costed. Integrated national financing frameworks (INFFs) can help countries to close this gap. They help countries raise resources, enhance coherence of financing policies, and overcome short-termism in budgeting and the financial sector. INFFs can also help countries recover from COVID-19 (coronavirus) and its economic fallout, finance building back better, and manage risks. Interest in INFFs has grown exponentially since the concept was introduced in the Addis Ababa Action Agenda—around 60 countries have committed to design and implement integrated financing frameworks with support from the UN system.
