The MTF serves as the central tenet of the implementation framework of Vision 2030 Jamaica and the main vehicle for advancing the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its 17 SDGs. To date, the MTF has included a package of prioritized national strategies and sector strategies, and the most critical/catalytic actions that operationalize the sector strategies. Each MTF is informed by several sources of evidence, public policy frameworks and arrangements.

The MTF is also informed by other development considerations, including development performance, such as gains, slippages, and gaps; the national and global development context; and the perspectives/experiences of stakeholders. The MTF is implemented through the alignment of the development programme (including subprogrammes, and projects) of ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs) and other development actors with the results and strategy framework of the MTF.
