Achieving exponential impact through partnerships
IFAD works tirelessly to empower rural people around the world. But alone, we can only do so much.
By collaborating with key players in the rural and agriculture sectors, we amplify IFAD’s impact by pooling investments, we boost development by brokering partnerships, and we advance ingenuity by bringing innovations from the lab to the field.
Only by working together can IFAD ensure impact at scale, achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and fulfil its mission of empowering rural people.
IFAD is always searching for new partners to build collective impact.
United Nations agencies
IFAD is both a specialized United Nations agency and an international financial institution (IFI). This unique identity allows us to consistently deliver results on the ground and in the policy arena that benefit rural communities. IFAD has a special relationship with the two other Rome-based UN agencies – the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) – with which we share a common vision of reducing poverty and promoting food security through sustainable agriculture. The UN also has a number of programmes and funds with whom IFAD has formalized relations.
