The United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) is the UN’s capital investment agency for the world’s least developed countries. It creates new opportunities for poor people and their communities by increasing access to development finance and investment capital. UNCDF focuses on the least developed countries in Africa and Asia, with a special commitment to countries emerging from conflict or crisis. It provides seed capital, loans and targeted technical support to help development finance institutions reach more poor households and small businesses, and local governments finance the capital investments – water systems, feeder roads, schools, irrigation schemes – that will improve poor peoples’ lives.
The MIF program aims at supporting towns, cities and urban areas in the region to secure the capital and recurrent financing required for their growing infrastructure and service requirements. The program operates in Senegal and other selected LDCs in the Western Africa region in coordination with the respective UNCDF country team under the direct supervision of the Regional Technical Advisor who is based in Dakar, Senegal, as well as the MIF Global Program Manager.
