The EU and UNCDF are natural partners, sharing many of the same values and objectives, including providing equal access to development opportunities for all, promoting women’s economic empowerment, and fighting to eradicate poverty around the world.
The EU is currently supporting UNCDF in its programmes and activities in Bangladesh, Lesotho, Niger, and Somalia. Along with other partners, the EU was instrumental in designing the UNCDF/UNDP Pacific Financial Inclusion Programme (PFIP) and continued to contribute to its financing since the beginning through the ACP/EU MICROFINANCE programme.
The EU-UNCDF cooperation takes place at the policy, advocacy, knowledge sharing and programmatic levels, each complementing one another.
