Countries around the world are using integrated national financing frameworks (INFFs) to build a more sustainable financing architecture at the country level. INFFs help governments to deepen the integration between national planning and financing policies, mobilize and align both public and private financing with the SDGs, and strengthen the governance of financing.
UNDP’s Sustainable Finance Hub (SFH) was established to aggregate UNDP’s work and expertise on SDG financing and to offer a comprehensive package of tools and support that enables governments, the private sector and international financial institutions to accelerate financing for the SDGs.
Integrated national financing frameworks are one of SFH’s five service offers. The Hub supports UNDP regional bureaus and country offices across all regions in more than 80 countries to work with governments and other partners at the national level to inform, shape, operationalize and implement INFFs.
In April 2022, UNDP joined UNDESA and the OECD, the EU, Italy and Sweden, to launch the INFF Facility. The Facility brokers support in response to country demand for technical assistance in the design and delivery of INFFs, facilitates country exchange and access to technical guidance, and builds partnerships to support country-led INFFs.
The SDG Finance Advisor and INFF Team Lead will manage the global INFF team within UNDP’s Sustainable Finance Hub and as part of the INFF Facility. They will be responsible for shaping and delivering a strategy for the team that supports governments to deliver effective INFFs, working through UNDP’s country offices and regional bureaus; strengthens the position of UNDP and the INFF Facility as go-to partners on INFFs; and builds and deepens collaboration with partners to support country-led INFFs.
The SDG Finance Advisor and INFF Team Lead will work under the supervision of the Chief of Programme in the Sustainable Finance Hub at UNDP HQ in New York.
