Infrastructure and Services

UNCDF’s financing mechanisms unlock investment from predominantly domestic public and private resources for the financing of catalytic local infrastructure with high local economic development impact.

These investments address the needs of secondary cities and cross border trade, through access to multiple sources of finance using instruments like Public Private Partnerships (PPPs), structured project finance, and municipal bonds.
