As the threat of deforestation grows, Suriname is committed to maintaining 93 percent forest cover. To meet this commitment, the country will need to mobilise more sustainable financing.
The aim of the integrated national financing framework (INFF) is, therefore, to develop a national roadmap for a sustainable financial system to reorient the flow of international and local resources towards more inclusive and gender responsive sustainable actions. The roadmap will consist of three main phases: diagnostic, capacity building, and green agreement development. The INFF process will promote dialogues, alliances and networks between government, development banks, private investors and the financial sector to facilitate informed policy and decision-making in the country. The National Roadmap will prioritise the implementation of sustainable forest management and other nature-based solutions.
By building a financial framework that strengthens partnerships between relevant sectors and private partners, Suriname will be in a better position to achieve the SDGs. Reaching specific targets related to the artisanal small-scale gold mining sector and the forest sector will improve Suriname’s progress towards the SDGs and accelerate the country’s progress towards a more sustainable future.
