The Germany-IFAD partnership

With small-scale farmers and rural people – especially women and youth – at the heart of their strategies for achieving a world with no hunger (Sustainable Development Goal 2), Germany and IFAD’s partnership priorities are to:

  • make small-scale farmers and local food systems resilient to shocks
  • achieve food and nutrition security, particularly in Africa and in fragile contexts
  • establish equitable and sustainable food systems that are resilient to shocks
  • promote socially equitable climate action and compensate local rural communities for the ecosystem services they provide
  • create opportunities for rural youth employment, through the promotion of inclusive agrifood value chains – in partnership with private investors.

Germany’s leadership has facilitated fundamental reforms to make IFAD fit for purpose by enabling it to engage with the private sector and supporting a prudent and sustainable financial strategy.

IFAD leverages the core resources it receives from Germany through its regular replenishment: every euro that Germany contributes to IFAD delivers a pro-poor total investment equivalent to EUR 6.
