The China-IFAD partnership

IFAD was the first international financial institution to lend to China. Since 1981, IFAD has worked with China to eliminate extreme poverty, increase food security and nutrition, and promote agricultural and rural development.

China is also a significant contributor to IFAD. China has greatly increased its contribution to IFAD’s core resources since IFAD10, becoming the largest contributor among developing countries in IFAD11 and IFAD12, with an overall ranking of twelfth among all Member States and second among the developing countries.

In 2018, China made a US$10 million supplementary contribution to establish the first dedicated Facility in IFAD to promote South-South and
Triangular Cooperation (SSTC).

The long-standing China–IFAD partnership is a good example of win-win cooperation in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
