Investing in rural people in Tunisia
Since 1980, IFAD has financed 13 rural development programmes and projects in Tunisia for a total cost of US$453 million, with an IFAD investment of US$194.6 million directly benefiting 125,850 rural households.
IFAD works closely with the government in its efforts to eradicate rural poverty in the country and support livelihood opportunities for rural populations.
The new IFAD results-based country strategic opportunities programme (2019-2024) in Tunisia, will emphasize improving access to basic production and infrastructure services and sustainable management of natural resources. This includes improving well-structured agricultural value chains for poor rural people, and economic and social empowerment of vulnerable rural women and youth.
