The West and Central Africa Advantage
November 2019

A new report from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) shows that by working with women, men, young people and indigenous peoples as change agents we are best placed to beat back the impact of climate change on rural communities in West and Central Africa (WCA).

The report, the West and Central Africa Advantage, shows that the integration of initiatives that fight climate change, improve nutrition, and foster women’s and youth empowerment give IFAD’s programmes a higher chance of success and bigger impact, minimizing trade-offs and risks.
