Impact Capital for the Least Developed Countries

The UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) is entirely funded by voluntary contributions from UN Member States, multilateral organizations and other sources.

These contributions are provided as regular (core) resources, or other resources earmarked for specific purposes. UNCDF's strategic funding targets include $25 million in regular resources per year, $75 million in other resources per year, and a one-time capitalisation of its LDC Investment Fund at $50 million.

With its unique mandate and focus on the LDCs

Contributions to regular and other resources provide a foundation for UNCDF’s ability to innovate, ensure maximum presence in the LDCs and provide robust support to the UN system at country level.

03
