The UN Capital Development Fund makes public and private finance work for the poor in the world’s 46 least developed countries (LDCs).
UNCDF offers “last mile” finance models that unlock public and private resources, especially at the domestic level, to reduce poverty and support local economic development.
UNCDF’s financing models work through three channels: (1) inclusive digital economies, which connects individuals, households, and small businesses with financial eco-systems that catalyze participation in the local economy, and provide tools to climb out of poverty and manage financial lives; (2) local development finance, which capacitates localities through fiscal decentralization, innovative municipal finance, and structured project finance to drive local economic expansion and sustainable development; and (3) investment finance, which provides catalytic financial structuring, de-risking, and capital deployment to drive SDG impact and domestic resource mobilization.
The Intern will be part of the Partnerships, Policy and Communications Unit in UNCDF Headquarters in New York (USA).
Under the guidance and supervision of the Knowledge Management and Communications Analyst, the Intern will support the implementation of the UNCDF Communications work-plan for 2021, including various related tasks to (i) Communications and Branding and (ii) Knowledge Management.
