The two-pronged interventions will enable the government to achieve its national development priorities. The programme is particularly important and timely in the context of the challenging economic situation and rising fiscal pressures, resulting in widening of the financing gap to support the implementation of national SDG targets until 2030. Since the government's approved expenditure budget for FY'2020 equals $2.7 billion while the estimated financing gap (2020-2030) stands at $118 billion, the programme will help the government to approve and implement a realistic financing plan to achieve its national development priorities and SDG targets.

The programme will promote evidence-based policies and actions backed by disaggregated data by gender and other vulnerability metrics.
