Kemal Dervis appoints the former President of NetAid and aide to Maurice Strong as head of UNCDF (what a shame)


David Morrison joined the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) as the Executive Secretary in July 2008. In this position, he sets UNCDF's strategic direction and provides organizational leadership and management for the organization.

Mr. Morrison began his career with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as Junior Professional Officer in DPR Korea in the late 1980s. (Morrison knew well about the US$ counterfeit in UNDP's Safe in DPRK- his signature was in the safe-count inventory - but he lied to US Congress)

He returned to UNDP in 1999-2000 as an Advisor to the Administrator on Strategy and Partnerships, serving on the incoming Administrator's Transition Team, and helping to create UNDP's Business Plans 2000 - 2003. From 2000-2004 he was President of NetAid, a partnership initiative founded by UNDP and Cisco Systems to use the Internet to fight poverty. Prior to joining UNCDF he served as UNDP's Director of Communications. (Where is NetAid money Mr. Morrison??)

Mr. Morrison has also worked for the Foreign Service of Canada, where his assignments included the Canadian Embassy in Havana and the Policy Staff in Ottawa, and for the World Economic Forum, where he was programme director for the annual summit in Davos, Switzerland, from 1995-1999.

Mr. Morrison holds an M. Phil from University of Oxford and a B.A. from Yale University. He is a Canadian citizen and speaks English, French and Spanish.
