Investing in rural people in Eritrea

IFAD has been engaged in Eritrea for the past 26 years, investing a total of US$165 million across seven projects.

IFAD’s long-term vision for the country is to gradually steer agriculture and the blue economy (fisheries) towards a more commercial, resilient and sustainable pathway. To achieve maximum
buy-in, programmes are fully integrated into central and decentralized government structures.

The major thrust of IFAD interventions in Eritrea is to contribute to enhancing the food and nutrition security of smallholder farmers and small-scale fishers through interventions to build resilience.

IFAD’s strategy in Eritrea is aligned with the country strategic opportunities programme (COSOP) jointly developed by IFAD and the Government of Eritrea.
