Investing in rural people in Angola

IFAD loans support government efforts to improve food security and rebuild the livelihoods of poor rural people through rural and agricultural development. In all, IFAD has implemented eight projects, at a total cost of US$257.91 million, including partner cofinancing. Over 486,000 households have benefited directly.

Activities target the poorest areas of the central highlands. IFAD projects address vulnerable groups such as women and households headed by women, young people, demobilized soldiers and displaced persons.

IFAD’s strategy in Angola focuses on supporting increased small-scale agriculture, fisheries and aquaculture productivity and production while building on lessons learned from earlier projects; helping farmers and pastoralists in southern Angola to recover from a five-year drought through re-capitalization of agricultural production; and increasing agricultural production and productivity and market access.
