By strengthening local capacities for integrating food security concerns into planning and budgeting, and by providing the financial instruments needed to make investments that strengthen local resilience to food shocks, UNCDF’s financing models create a more sustainable environment for addressing local food security issues.
UNCDF also supports agriculture finance to reach smallholder farmers. Financial inclusion contributes towards greater food security and less hunger by helping farmers reduce their risks through adapted financial products, allowing them to improve their use of agricultural inputs and to invest more productively, resulting in higher yields and incomes.
