The Norway-IFAD partnership
IFAD and Norway share a vision of a world without poverty and hunger. IFAD’s work on inclusive and sustainable food systems, with its focus on results, plays an important role in the achievement of Norway’s priorities in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Growing rural and urban populations and shifting consumption patterns can offer income gains and job creation for people in rural areas. Norway recognizes IFAD’s strategic contribution to addressing this opportunity, and as a result is one of IFAD’s top donors. Norway is a founding member of IFAD and a member of the Fund’s Executive Board, providing leadership, particularly on gender, disability, nutrition and climate, in addition to strategic directions on risk management, transparency, value for money and impact.
