The Netherlands-IFAD partnership
The partnership between IFAD and the Netherlands is based on a shared vision and a strong alignment of their respective policies and strategic priorities. The partners agree that to achieve the targets of Sustainable Development Goal 2, it will be vital to:
- foster smallholder agriculture in order to achieve food and nutrition
- support the mainstreaming of climate change
- ensure gender equality and women’s empowerment
- promote private-sector development, including through public-private-producer partnerships (the 4Ps approach).
IFAD and the Government of the Netherlands promote closely connected objectives: a) preventing conflict and instability; b) eradicating poverty and reducing social inequality; and c) driving sustainable and inclusive growth and climate action worldwide.
