Our Mission

Making commodities works for everyone

The Common Fund’s mandate is to enhance the socioeconomic development of commodity producers and contribute to the development of society as a whole. In line with its market-oriented approach, the Fund concentrates on commodity development projects financed from its resources.

These resources consist of voluntary contributions, capital subscriptions by Member Countries transferred to the Second Account and interest earned. In partnership with other development institutions, the private sector and civil society, the Fund endeavours to achieve overall efficiency in and impact on commodity development.

Our Projects

In the least developed countries people heavily depent on commodities for their livelihood. Thus, commodities form the backbone of economies and they account for the bulk of the export earnings of countries.

CFC is proud to play a catalytic role in promoting and supporting poverty alleviation through commodity- focused development.

Call for Proposals

Funding innovation,
making a difference

The Common Fund for Commodities provides financing to organisations and enterprises engaged in commodity value chains in its member countries.

Through a range of financial instruments, the CFC seeks to support business activities in the field of commodity development, including agriculture, minerals and metals in Developing Countries. The intervention should, besides giving a sound financial return, also provide for a measurable social and environmental return.
