Background

  1. < >Integrated National Financing Framework (INFF) goes in line with the commitment of the Government of Azerbaijan to lead the progress in the country within the framework of Agenda 2030. To this end, INFF will provide a framework for financing national sustainable development priorities and the SDGs and align with the national priorities.As a part of the global UN SDG Joint Fund, UNDP in Azerbaijan together with the Ministry of Economy, in consultation with National Coordination Council for Sustainable Development (NCCSD) designed “Sustainable, Integrated and Gender Inclusive Finance Framework for Azerbaijan, Beyond Oil”. The main objective of this project is to support the Government of Azerbaijan in optimizing resource allocation towards national development ambitions in line with the 2030 Agenda and ensure an INFF to support the Government of Azerbaijan in managing and mobilizing private, public and international financing for sustainable development results. The end-goal is to catalyse and scale-up sustainable investments in Azerbaijan. As such, the UNDP is designing a series of activities including Development Finance Assessment (DFA) to foster SDG-investing knowledge and backing the necessary frameworks, tools and policies to attract green investments into the Azerbaijan economy.

    In February, the President has approved "Azerbaijan 2030: National Priorities for socio-economic development” (link) that outlines 5 national priorities such as steadily growing competitive economy; society based on dynamic, inclusive, and social justice; competitive human capital and space for modern innovations; great return to the liberated territories; clean environment and green growth. To this end, INFF should complement the ongoing efforts of the government to implement Azerbaijan 2030 agenda.

    DFA is a tool to help countries shape the inception phase in the process of operationalising an INFF which will support financing for building back better (link).

    The DFA offers a comprehensive analysis of the public and private financing outlook, financing policies and institutional structures, and opportunities to build a more integrated approach to financing. It is a tool designed to aggregate analysis and build collaboration among actors. Alongside the new analysis that it undertakes, the DFA draws together information from a wide range of sources and assessments that focus on particular finance flows or policy areas.

    A series of financing dialogues form the backbone of the DFA process. Under the guidance of a government-led national oversight team the DFA brings together government officials, private sector and other stakeholders to facilitate discussion on how to operationalise a more integrated approach to financing through an INFF. The DFA facilitates discussions on the challenges and opportunities across public and private financing and aims to build consensus on ways forward.

    The outcome of the DFA is an INFF Roadmap which lays out the steps that will be taken subsequently to operationalise an INFF. The INFF Roadmap will be developed under the leadership of the oversight team and capture the steps agreed through the DFA process about how each of the INFF building blocks will be brought together and operationalised within the Azerbaijan context.[1]

    In this way the DFA can shape the inception phase of the process of operationalising an INFF in Azerbaijan to support socio-economic recovery that builds back better, including a particular focus on clean environment and green growth (in line with pillar 5 of Azerbaijan 2030). It offers a process through which government can build the buy-in, complete the analysis, and build the consensus that is needed for decisions about how an INFF will support financing for building back better and the steps through which it will be operationalised.

     

    2. SCOPE OF WORK, RESPONSIBILITIES AND DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED WORK

    Under the supervision of the UNDP Country Office, and with the support of the UNDP Finance Sector Hub, the Lead INFF Expert will lead the technical components of the DFA process for Azerbaijan.

    The Lead expert is responsible for guiding, shaping and delivering the substantive analysis and recommendations of the DFA process, culminating in the articulation and agreement of an INFF Roadmap.

    DFA initial analysis and consultation phase

    • Compile and analyse data and policy literature to build an understanding of the trends and outlook across public and private financing, and of existing structures, ongoing reforms and opportunities to strengthen financing policies and institutional structures in relation to the building blocks of an INFF. There will be a particular focus within this analysis on financing in relation to the clean environment and green growth objectives of pillar 5 of Azerbaijan 2030. The analysis will follow the DFA analytical framework– see summary of substantive analysis below.

The key analysis includes:
