One of the main challenges of development cooperation remains on how to fuel economic growth in an inclusive, socially and environmentally sustainable manner, in order to deliver maximum benefits for current and future generations. UNCDF’s approach, within its unique financial mandate, comes two-folded. Through its two areas of expertise, Inclusive Finance and Local Development Finance, UNCDF promotes financial and territorial inclusion by providing investment capital and technical support. The belief is that, though the public sector has a crucial role to play, inclusive growth and hence, poverty reduction can only be achieved by also supporting the private sector and creating linkages and synergies between the two sectors.
