Publication Year: 2017 Publisher: UN-DESA

Background

The present publication of the Financing for Development Office at the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN-DESA) and the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) is designed to promote knowledge sharing among stakeholders in urban finance and local sustainable development. Its prime objective is to support government officials in the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) at the local and national levels to strengthen their urban finance frameworks and to create an enabling environment in their constituencies. At the same time, it should provide relevant insights for donor organizations and other stakeholders that want to strengthen their engagement with local governments in LDCs.
