Finding common ground and tackling climate change through food
Recipes for Change is a collection of recipes from IFAD projects around the world that bring you a taste of other people’s lives through the food they eat—from the Hong family in the Mekong Delta to the Bibutsuwahoze family in Rwanda.
A select group of chefs add extra flavour to these recipes, linking farmers and consumers and creating meals from crops. Recipes for Change chefs tackle barriers to equitable and environmentally friendly food systems by thinking globally and acting locally.
These recipes also examine the devastating impacts the climate crisis is having on rural communities and the essential ingredients they cook with, while calling attention to the adaptation solutions that IFAD offers. Through Recipes for Change, IFAD encourages consumers to buy more sustainably, chefs to cook smarter, and donors to commit to the eradication of rural poverty.
