European Commission and IFAD: Innovating together

January 2016
Since 2006, the European Commission (EC) has collaborated with IFAD in financing a series of thematic and country programmes. This relatively recent partnership has grown in multiple and interesting directions, both in terms of funds invested, and the spread of programmes that benefit from that investment. From the US$50 million given to IFAD through the Food Facility of 2008, the EC now invests a total of more than US$326 million across selected thematic and country programmes. A relationship of trust, rigour and shared vision has evolved.

Joseph Nganga, Programme Officer

January 2016
I have worked as a Country Programme Officer since 2011, but before that I worked in IFAD-funded projects in Kenya. When I was recruited to work at IFAD I was overjoyed.

Seiko Yabumoto, Assistant

January 2016
I've been at IFAD since 2006 initially as temporary staff and in 2007 I started working with the governing bodies office as an assistant. In 2011 I become Assistant to the Director & Treasurer. My roles at IFAD have been a great way to be exposed to IFAD operations – all official documents pass through the Governing Bodies office and all the IFAD commitments and deliverables are recorded. That was a great way to be thrown into IFAD's work. I have brought previous experience and knowledge with me from the private sector and the fashion industry. Everything that you learn, you never throw away. At IFAD I have been able to build on these experiences.
