INFF is developed and driven by the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning and the Office of the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Sustainable Development Goals (OSSAP-SDGs) with technical and financial support from the United Nations Development Project, and the  European Union (EU) in Nigeria.

The President during the launch said the INFF was developed for the mapping out of the much-needed sustainable financing plan for Nigeria to deliver on our commitment to the SDGs and our National Development aspirations.

Ms Zainab Ahmed, minister of finance, said with the launching of the policy, the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has demonstrated a strong commitment toward the #2030Agenda for sustainable development and will continue to do so.
