This report showcases the progress and potential of UNCDF in the transition to the new sustainable development agenda. It highlights the results of UNCDF’s work in 2014 and what – based on our experience – are three powerful and effective ways to maximize resources for the Post-2015 Development Agenda. Firstly, using ‘smart’ ODA as a critical ingredient for domestic resource mobilization. Secondly, investing in financial inclusion, facilitated by digital finance, as a key driver for individual and household engagement in the local economy. Thirdly, localizing the flows of public and private finance, and investment in infrastructure, which has proven acceleration, empowerment, and de-risking effects for local economic development.
