UNCDF Transparency Window

Welcome to the UNCDF Transparency Window, where you will find how the organization is deploying its funds to make public and private finance work for the poor primarily in the world's 46 least developed countries (LDCs).

UNCDF leverages three main funding sources from member states or other partners, namely core voluntary contributions, flexible non-core, and earmarked resources which make up its funding architecture.

Like all resources available to the organization, we are committed to using these funds responsibly and with complete transparency. Through this online window, which is updated quarterly, you can see exactly how UNCDF is deploying its programme financing, through seed capital, loans, and targeted technical support, to build and leverage stable and resilient local economies.

At UNCDF, we are committed to improving transparency in everything we do and embrace a transparent approach to our collaborations with the LDCs and partner organizations we work with.
