Engaging with Islamic finance is a part of UNDP’s global strategy. In this regard, partnerships are forming in Indonesia and other UNDP country offices.
Through its Innovative Financing Lab, UNDP has been helping in designing and testing new financing instruments which involve Islamic finance as a significant element together with blended finance, as well as green finance, sustainable finance, and social impact investing.
UNDP Indonesia works to leverage solutions to finance the Sustainable Development Goals in partnership with government and private stakeholders, unlocking the potential of Islamic financial instruments including zakat.
