Creating dialogue at the national, regional and international level

IFAD convenes a number of global meetings and forums aimed at creating a more systematic dialogue between United Nations agencies and the rural communities we support.

These meetings institutionalize IFAD's consultation and dialogue with farmer organizations and indigenous peoples' representatives at the national, regional and international levels.
