Overview :

UNDP and UNICEF are planning to launch a Global wide Fundraising and Awareness raising/Advocacy campaign that calls on governments, private sector, diaspora and philanthropy partners to join forces within the African Solidarity Mechanism and support with funding and financial support the poorest countries and communities that have been hardest hit by the pandemic and other shocks, ranging from cyclones, droughts and floods to locust invasions and conflict. Beyond supporting the funding of urgent needs in Africa, from the short term and emergency perspective (vaccines, support to informal/MSME sector, education, fight poverty, help in climate disasters), the campaign aims to create awareness around the idea that achieving the SDGs in the short, medium and longer term is an ambition that requires all actors in a society and that joint efforts are therefore needed to bridge the financing gap. A core message to be transmitted here, aligned with the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA) recommendations, is that the effort implies profound reforms in terms of how finance is mapped and channelled towards SDGs and how such processes are monitored and coordinated within a whole-of-society approach, in line with the INFF paradigm.
