Job Title:    Programme Analyst

Capital Development Fund (UNCDF)

Duty Station:

About US:

The UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) makes public and private finance
work for the poor in the world’s 47 least developed countries (LDCs). With its
capital mandate and instruments, 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. This last mile is where
available resources for development are scarcest; where market failures are
most pronounced; and where benefits from national growth tend to leave people
excluded.
