Investing in rural people in Paraguay

IFAD-funded operations in Paraguay focus on empowering smallholder farmers and indigenous families by creating and strengthening rural organizations - in terms of governance, organizational administration and service capacity - to provide members with the tools they need to manage their own development.

Training and funding allow rural organizations’ members to increasingly use technology in agricultural production in a number of areas:

  • sound input use techniques
  • soil conservation practices
  • efficient irrigation
  • use of appropriate genetic resources.
