Scaling up our impact
As a UN Specialized Agency, IFAD partners with a wide range of multilateral organizations for knowledge generation and sharing, advocacy and engagement around inclusive pro-poor policies, and collaboration and cofinancing of investment projects.
Working with a diverse group of multilateral partners allows IFAD to leverage their capacity to promote and finance rural transformation.
Beyond the UN System, our partners include multilateral development banks and international financial institutions, such as the African Development Bank, the Islamic Development Bank, the OPEC Fund for International Development and the World Bank. IFAD also works with regional organizations such as ASEAN, COMESA, ECOWAS, the European Union and Mercosur; multilateral climate and environment funds, such as the GCF and GEF; and other multilateral organizations, such as the OECD.
