|Overview : |
The Local Development Finance Practice (LDFP) at the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) adopts a transformative impact financing approach to promote service delivery, infrastructure investment and local economic development that retains value within the local territory. This builds local fiscal space and local fixed capital formation. Working with local governments, domestic banks and local businesses, LDF designs, pilots and tests out financing mechanisms and business models in both public and private sectors that support locally designed public investments and revenue generating capital investment projects. The investment financing toolboxes include Fiscal Decentralization, Local Development Funds for public capital investment programming, Structured Project Finance, Municipal Finance, SME Finance, and Public-Private Partnerships.
To support the described mandate, the LDFP has developed different tools:
- Revenue Generating Pipeline - RGP database
- Other Databases:
- LDF Global Database- LDF database
- UNCDF Corporate Enterprise Resources Planning System (ERP) – ATLAS
As the portfolio is expanding, it is becoming important that the quality, accuracy a timely access of the RGP pipeline is further enhanced. In this context, the LDFP aims to develop a simple, yet practical, Online Based Financial-Impact Management System (FIMS).
