The United States and IFAD
Sharing a vision of how to achieve a world without hunger and poverty, the United States and IFAD have been working together for nearly 40 years. Consistent with its longstanding leadership role, the United States holds the largest voting share among IFAD Member States, with 7 per cent. Its US$90 million pledge to the Tenth Replenishment of IFAD’s resources (2016-2018) represents 8.7 per cent of the total. The United States has been instrumental in promoting institutional reform within IFAD, leading to more effective and efficient programmes and enhanced results while reducing costs and maintaining quality. The United States’ recent global hunger and food security initiatives and the approach embodied in the Global Food Security Act of 2016, closely mirror the Fund’s mandate and strategic priorities. Both the United States and IFAD position the world’s smallholder farmers at the centre, recognizing that with the right investments, policies and programmes, smallholders have enormous potential to contribute to greater global food security and to reduce poverty. Both also see equal opportunities for rural women and girls as key to success, together with the need to protect natural resources and ensure environmental sustainability.

The country programme strategy (2016-2021) is based on national priorities and has three strategic objectives focusing on income and strategic opportunities; human and social capital; and institutional development. The strategy emphasizes the central role farmer and community organizations play in rural transformation processes.
