Overview :

Significant changes are taking place in the development finance landscape worldwide. Developing countries like Malawi are going through a transition in terms of mobilizing and managing resources - both domestic and external as well as public and private - to finance their development plans and aspirations.

The Third International Conference on Financing for Development, held in Addis Ababa in July 2015, opened the discussions on how to mobilise the unprecedented amounts of financial resources that will be required to achieve the SDGs. The Addis Ababa Action Agenda assumes that countries will use their own national development strategies and plans to respond to the SDGs and calls for the adoption of Integrated National Financing Frameworks (INFFs). In this connection, Malawi plans to undertake a Development Finance Assessment (DFA), under the leadership of the Ministry of Finance, Economic Planning and Development which will consider the links between finance and national development priorities and the scope for stronger alignment of finance with MGDS III and the SDGs moving forward. The assessment will help provide recommendations for a road map for establishing an Integrated National Financing Framework.
