UNCDF leverages three main funding sources from member states or other partners, namely core voluntary contributions, flexible non-core, and earmarked resources which make up its funding architecture.
Like all resources available to the organization, we are committed to using these funds responsibly and with complete transparency. Through an online window, which is updated quarterly, you can see exactly how UNCDF is deploying its programme financing, through seed capital, loans, and targeted technical support, to build and leverage stable and resilient local economies.

The Office of Audit and Investigations (OAI) at UNDP has set up an Investigations Hotline and other measures to ensure that people who wish to report fraud may do so, free of charge, via a variety of options, as part of UNCDF's strategy to strengthen the accountability framework for the Organization and to provide opportunities for bringing to light any misconduct, wrongdoing by any individuals working for or doing business with UNCDF.
The UN Capital Development Fund subscribes to the UNDP Accountability Framework & Oversight Policy and complies with the UNDP Programme and Operations Policies and Procedures , which provides a framework for results and risk-based performance management, with particular emphasis on the values and culture of accountability and transparency.
The policy encompasses mechanisms for independent internal and external oversight of UNCDF, designed to provide assurances to the Executive Board that functional systems of internal controls are in place, that policy frameworks are appropriate, that resources are utilized effectively, and that professional and ethical standards are upheld.
Along with the rest of the UN system, in 2012 UNCDF began to report its finances according to the International Public Sector Accounting Standards, further increasing its transparency and accountability.
Jointly prepared by the Bureau for Management Services, the Office of Audit and Investigations and the Ethics Office at UNDP, this updated UNDP Anti-Fraud Policy (which supersedes the previous policy statement codified since 2005), reaffirms that UNCDF adopts a zero tolerance policy against frauds and other corrupt practices that are inconsistent with the UN Standard of Conduct or involve a loss to UNCDF funds.
This Anti-Fraud Policy applies to all activities and operations of UNCDF. It covers any project funded by UNCDF, any project implemented by UNCDF, and any implementing partner. It covers fraud or allegations of frauds involving UNCDF staff members and its personnel, including but not limited to consultants, service contract holders (SCs), individual contractors (ICs) , interns, and United Nations volunteers (UNVs) as well as frauds perpetrated against UNCDF by contractors, suppliers of goods and services, implementing partners, or other third parties.
In order to strengthen UNCDF's accountability framework and to provide opportunities for bringing to light any misconduct, wrongdoing by any individuals working for or doing business with us, UNCDF has established an Investigations Hotline to ensure that persons wishing to report fraud may do so using the link below.
The investigations hotline, managed by an independent service provider on behalf of UNDP to protect confidentiality, can be directly accessed worldwide and free of charge through the following link:
