UNCDF and the SDGs

17 Goals to transform our world

The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries — poor, rich and middle-income — to promote prosperity while protecting the planet.

UNCDF’s primary contributions are to SDG 1, with a focus on reaching the last mile and addressing exclusion and inequalities of access, and SDG 17, with a focus on unlocking public and private finance for the poor at the local level. By identifying those market segments where innovative financing models can have transformational impact in helping to reach the last mile, UNCDF contributes to a number of other SDGs too.
