IFAD and GEF partnership on climate change - Fighting a global challenge at the local level

noviembre 2008
There is a general consensus that rural areas and rural livelihood systems will bear the brunt of climate change across the globe. More frequent extreme weather events such as heat waves and intense precipitation are likely to place the livelihoods of many rural people at risk. Africa is expected to be the most vulnerable continent to climate change, and will face a decline in both food security and agricultural activity, particularly in relation to subsistence farming. The impact of climate change on agriculture is expected to be devastating in many parts of the developing world. Especially in the least developed countries, declining crop productivity and livestock deaths associated with further global warming pose a serious threat to food security and national economies. Nonetheless, vulnerability to climate change can be exacerbated by poverty, marginality and low adaptive capacity. An integrated approach is therefore needed to bridge the gap between local development and the global challenge of climate change.

Institutional and organizational analysis for pro-poor change: meeting IFAD's millennium challenge - A sourcebook

junio 2008
As part of its obligations undertaken to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, IFAD committed itself to enabling the rural poor to help themselves out of poverty by increasing theirorganizational capacity to influence institutions of relevance to rural poverty reduction (policies, laws and regulations). As a result, IFAD has embarked upon a process to strengthen its own organizational competencies in institutional analysis and dialogue. This sourcebook is an attempt to complement and further this process. It has been written keeping in mind the needs of country programme managers, as well as consultants working with IFAD.

De la agricultura de subsistencia a la obtención de ganancias: los beneficios de los pozos para uso agrícola en Sri Lanka

junio 2008
Gracias a pozos grandes y bien construidos la agricultura se está convirtiendo en una actividad rentable para los agricultores que viven en las zonas secas de Sri Lanka. De 1999 a 2007 los agricultores de las zonas secas del distrito de Matale se beneficiaron del Proyecto para el Adelanto Económico Regional de Matale, financiado en su mayor parte con un préstamo de USD 11,7 millones concedido por el FIDA al Gobierno de Sri Lanka. El presupuesto total del proyecto era de USD 14,5 millones y de la iniciativa se beneficiaron 30 000 hogares. Una de las principales actividades del subcomponente del proyecto dedicado a la conservación de suelos y la ordenación hídrica consistió en prestar asistencia a los agricultores más pobres para permitirles construir pozos para uso agrícola destinados al riego. Esta actividad comenzó en 2001.

IFAD, the African Union and the New Partnership for Africa's Development

mayo 2008
IFAD has been working closely with the African Union (AU) and the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) since they were established in July 2001, seeking new ways to combat rural poverty across the continent. African leaders created NEPAD to promote sustainable development and strengthen efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the international community’s time-bound targets to meet the needs of the world’s poorest people. Within the framework of NEPAD, the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) was prepared in June 2002.

Enabling poor rural people to overcome poverty in Lesotho

mayo 2008
The main objectives of IFAD’s operations in the country are to improve food security and family nutrition. Since 1980, IFAD has supported agricultural development by investing a total of US$64.3 million in seven programmes and projects to reduce poverty in the country’s rural areas. Normally, Lesotho is not in a position to grow enough food to feed its growing population. Offsetting the effects on poor households of declining agricultural production, IFAD investments support the efforts of small-scale farmers to ensure food security for their families and improve their incomes. Increased productivity is a key to achieving these aims and to reducing poverty in rural areas. IFAD finances programmes and projects that encourage poor people’s participation in the planning and development of income-generating activities, including microenterprises.

IFAD' s Action Plan for Improving its Development Effectiveness

abril 2008
In 2004 and 2005, IFAD underwent a comprehensive Independent External Evaluation (IEE). The evaluation was conducted to determine IFAD’s contribution to rural poverty reduction, examine the relevance of its mission and objectives, assess its corporate learning and performance, and make recommendations on policy directions and steps to improve IFAD’s performance. It was, at the time, probably the most ambitious exercise of its kind for a United Nations agency, breaking new ground in addressing institutional performance in terms of impact.
