Italy and IFAD share a commitment to a world where people can exercise their right to safe, nutritious and sufficient food and live decent lives.
Since IFAD was established in 1977, Italy has played a crucial role in contributing to the Fund not just as host country and top donor, but also as a long-standing leader in financial innovation and inclusive agri-food value chain development.
With strong support from Italy, IFAD is recognized as the primary global vehicle for investments in smallholder agriculture that build partnerships and mobilize additional resources.
Because it works exclusively in rural areas, where 80 per cent of the world’s poorest people live, IFAD has a key role to play in the 2030 Agenda and particularly in Sustainable Development Goals 1 and 2: ending poverty and hunger by 2030.
