Financing the SDGs in the Least Developed Countries (LDCs): Diversifying the Financing Tool-box and Managing Vulnerability

Agence Francaise de Developpement (AFD)

This joint report from UNDP and the French Development Agency (AFD) looks at how the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) can make better use of a more diverse financing for development 'tool-box'. These include innovations such as GDP-indexed bonds and countercyclical loan contracts. Can these innovations be scaled-up and how can we ensure all financing is 'risk-informed'? The report concludes with an action to improve LDCs’ access to the financing 'tool-box'.
