Japan and IFAD share an understanding that reducing poverty and strengthening food and nutrition security is not just about raising incomes and increasing production. Human well-being has social as well as economic dimensions and it needs to be addressed in the wider context of human security.

IFAD’s rural transformation agenda is based on supporting rural communities as powerful engines for sustainable and people-centred development and as peaceful and dynamic societies. IFAD’s work ensures that poor people in these remote rural communities are empowered, leaving no one behind.

Japan and IFAD are working together particularly in Africa, with Japan taking a leading initiative on the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD). IFAD’s strategic focus is closely aligned with Japan’s official development assistance priorities, which include, among others, empowerment of women, climate change, nutrition and public-private-producer partnerships.

As a founding member of IFAD, Japan has pledged a total of over US$504 million to IFAD’s regular replenishments. Japan has also provided its support through supplementary contributions, including US$5.8 million for the empowerment of women.

Japan has served on the Executive Board since IFAD’s inception. Japan also contributes to IFAD’s corporate-level discussion through participation in the Consultation on the Eleventh Replenishment of IFAD’s Resources (IFAD11) and the Working Group on the Performance-Based Allocation System (PBAS).
