Democratic Governance and Urban Development
DIG builds the capacity of local governments, basic service providers, and civil society organizations to improve the living conditions of the urban poor. Our staff members assist under-served communities in five main areas: basic service delivery, improvement of urban informal settlements, municipal government strengthening, community infrastructure planning and construction, and land tenure security.
DIG leverages investments from multilateral development institutions, foundations, and socially-minded investors to design and manage funds that support viable development finance institutions at the global and national levels. We expect that access to the appropriate blend of capital and technical assistance will result in better quality and diversity of financial products that successfully meet the needs of the poor, feeding a virtuous cycle of growth – both for the financial institutions and the households they serve.
