The International Association of Local and Regional Development Funds in Emerging Markets (IADF) is committed to improve education, training, and coverage of municipal development funds and other specialized financial institutions that lend to local governments throughout the world. With our partners in the Global Development Alliance, we seek to become a resource for managers of such institutions through our newsletter, database, conference, study tours, and other information found here on this website. We invite you to contact us with any questions or comments as we develop these programs and resources.
