UNDP & Crowdfunding
UNDP has adopted crowdfunding as an alternative funding solution to support projects that are designed for and by the communities they serve. With UNDP’s long-standing commitment to transparency, and track record for accountability and aid effectiveness, giving through UNDP represents one of the clearest paths to making a difference at the local level in one of the 170 countries and territories UNDP serves.
