 Investment Officer Jobs At UN Capital Development Fund

Investment Officer Jobs At UN Capital Development Fund

View Article

 Investment Officer  

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 drives structural transformation of localities through policy and regulatory reform, fiscal decentralization, innovative municipal finance, and project finance to unlock capital flows to the local level, combined 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.

UNCDF’s Local Development Finance Practice (LD) aims to be center of excellence and innovative fund for local government finance and local economic development finance in the world’s 46 LDCs. LD promotes and supports transformative investments through local governments and domestic financial institutions (banks, pension funds) in LDCs by piloting and scaling up innovative financing mechanisms and policies in the public and private sectors. UNCDF’s work in Local Development Finance is best understood as an appreciation that the local dimension to development is essential for least developed countries (and least developed regions in all developing countries) to transform their economies and societies into an inclusive, diverse and sustainable system for human realization and planetary health. Local development is clearly defined not just as a local initiative, because everything happens somewhere, but as an initiative that draws from local assets to add value that is inclusively shared locally: infrastructure, services, value chains and environmental value – in other words an initiative with transformative impact.

The Local Finance Initiative (LFI) programme is designed to unlock the flow of capital to invest small and medium-sized infrastructure projects that are required to accelerate local economic development and private sector development. It is a UNCDF front office capacity that help to deliver local economic development in collaboration with national institutions, local authorities and SMEs in developing countries. Furthermore, LFI through the UNCDF’s International Municipal Investment Fund Technical Assistance Facility (IMIF-TAF) help municipalities to prepare projects to be investment ready and support to ensure that they meet the requirements for accessing financial markets.

The UNCDF is seeking to hire an experienced Investment Officer with expertise in developing and financing municipal investment projects and the formulation of public private partnership investment frameworks. The Investment officer will be based in Tanzania and work under the direct supervision of the Global LFI Manager based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. There is a secondary coordination reporting line to the Municipal Investment Finance (MIF) Manager based in New York.
