The Sweden-IFAD partnership
August 2020

Sweden and IFAD have a longstanding partnership and remain committed to achieving a world without poverty and hunger (SDG2) by increasing sustainable and inclusive investments in rural areas, where 80 per cent of the world’s poorest people live.

Sweden is a founding member of the Fund and it is one of the 36 Members of IFAD’s Executive Board, through which it provides strong leadership on setting an ambitious climate agenda and guiding IFAD’s organizational reforms and innovative financial processes.
