The SDG of the month for February is SDG 11—to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. So, we invited Jaffer Machano, Global Programme Manager for UNCDF’s Municipal Finance Programme, back to the podcast. Jaffer was our guest for Episode 3, where he laid out the challenges that cities, towns and local governments face in terms of accessing the necessary capital to finance sustainable development projects, particularly in least developed countries. For Episode 9, Jaffer shifts his focus towards the solutions, including those solutions he is engineering on the ground.
Capital Musings is a production of the Partnerships, Policy and Communications unit of the United Nations Capital Development Fund and UN Web TV.
