The Spain–IFAD partnership

Spain is a founding member of IFAD and has contributed a total of US$105.76 million to the regular resources of the Fund since it was established in 1977. In addition, Spain has provided a total of US$18 million in supplementary grant funds.

The partnership between Spain and IFAD focuses on investing in smallholder agriculture to ensure food and nutrition security. Particular attention is paid to gender equality, climate change adaptation, sustainable land use, financial inclusion and increasing the engagement of the private sector.

In 2020, Spain and IFAD signed a new cofinancing framework to enable Spain to increase cofinancing for IFAD investment programmes.
