The objective of United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) is to assist developing countries in building up their economies by supplementing existing sources of capital assistance by means of grants and loans. It is UN’s capital investment agency for the world’s 47 Least Developed Countries (LDCs). UNCDF uses its capital mandate to help LDCs pursue inclusive growth through the deployment of Official Development Assistance (ODA) to unlock public and private finance.
We, as one of the Long-Term Agreement (LTA) holders, are supporting UNCDF’s attempts to strengthen the practice of evaluation, both within UNCDF and across the UN system. We are adopting innovative approaches, methods, and techniques for the evaluation work to further align it with the ever-evolving best practices internationally.
