IFAD Policy on the Disclosure of Documents

The IFAD Policy on the Disclosure of Documents was first adopted by the Governing Council in February 1998 for an interim phase of 18 months, that is, from July 1998 to December 1999. At the end of this period, the Executive Board was authorized by the Governing Council to adopt a final policy.

On the basis of the initial policy, the Board has periodically adopted and reviewed (respectively in 2000, 2003, 2006 and 2009) the Fund’s disclosure regime, in response to requests from Member States and the public for greater access to documents and information on IFAD’s activities.

Today, the Fund discloses a range of information, through a variety of channels. This includes documents submitted to the plenary sessions of its governing bodies, information notes on projects being developed for Board presentation, agreements for approved loans and grants, and project/programme design documents.

The policy was reviewed following the approval of IFAD’s Policy on Disclosure of Documents for Non-Sovereign Private Sector Operations (EB 2022/136/R.5) by the Executive Board at its 136th session.
