UNCDF’s financing models are relevant to the green economy as they help reduce the vulnerability of local communities to climate change and lead to the sustainable use of resources. UNCDF develops and tests models that get resources flowing into secondary cities, peri-urban and rural areas to mitigate the effects of climate change and build resilience. They also help these localities meet the growing demand for sustainable infrastructure. These finance models support the transition to clean and efficient energy for low income consumers.
