UN Capital Development Fund Executive Secretary Marc Bichler speaks about the work of the organization, which primarily operates in the least developed countries. The organization has thirty-six sources of core funding, including from UN member states and donor governments, and from the private sector. UNCDF operates on the ground through inclusive finance and local development finance strategies, partnering with local governments, enterprises, and microfinance institutions. It also works to harness new technologies in development projects. It conducts a Youth Start Program, where it introduces young people to microsavings and trains them in life skills, and also a Clean Start Program, in which it forges partnership with clean energy organizations. The Clean Start Program strives to affect climate change from the bottom up and create new economic opportunities through adapting to climate change. UNCDF orientates its work along national development policies and adapting to the conditions of local populations.
