African women and youth finance digital directory01 May 2014
The United Nations Development Programme’s African Facility for Inclusive Markets, in collaboration with the NEPAD Agency’s Africa Platform for Development Effectiveness, also known as“APDev” have developed a unique digital directory - The African Women and Youth Finance Directory - to provide and disseminate information on funding sources and technical assistance programmes that provide support to women and youth run enterprises and organizations in Africa.
The aim of the founding partners UNDP AFIM and the NEPAD Agency is to leverage the existing architecture of APDev portal and develop a community of practice for economic development practitioners, investorsr, and women
and youth enterprise promoters to engage, hold e-discussions, post information on new funding and technical assistance initiatives and to facilitate match making between those looking for support and those o ering support. Site visitors interested in the Community of Practice will receive e-updates related to new content on the site, upcoming events and e-discussions.
