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.

Annual report on investigative and anti-corruption activities 2007

enero 2008
The Investigation Section of the Office of Audit and Oversight (OA-IS) was set up in 2006 with a mandate to investigate alleged irregular practices, namely (i) fraud and corruption, when applied to entities, contractors and non-staff individuals applying for or participating in IFAD-financed activities, and (ii) staff misconduct. This was pursuant to the adoption by the Executive Board in December 2005 of the IFAD Policy on Preventing Fraud and Corruption in its Activities and Operations (EB 2005/85/R.5/Rev.1, paragraph 26). The establishment of a Sanctions Committee and the development of debarment procedures in February 2007 further bolstered the effectiveness of the IFAD investigative and sanctions process. These changes aligned IFAD with best practices applied by other United Nations agencies and the major multilateral development banks (MDBs) in this area.

Improving marketing strategies in Western and Central Africa

junio 2007
Many rural development efforts in Western and Central Africa have focused on how to improve poor farmers’ yields. But better yields have not always translated into greater incomes. As the use of cassava has grown, the role of efficient markets and a better coordinated cassava chain have become increasingly important to producers and processors who depend on a stable cassava sector for income.

IFAD in the Near East and North Africa region

enero 2007

Annual report on investigative and anti-corruption activities 2006

enero 2007
The Oversight Committee (OVC) was established in May 2000 with a mandate to coordinate investigations into alleged irregular practices, namely (i) fraud and corruption, when applied to entities, contractors and non-staff individuals applying for or participating in IFAD-financed activities, and (ii) staff misconduct. The efforts of the Fund to prevent the incidence of fraud and corruption in its activities and operations were further boosted through the adoption of an anticorruption policy by the Executive Board in November 2005. Throughout 2006, IFAD worked towards introducing the structures and tools required for implementing its anticorruption policy. In 2006, the investigative capacity of the OVC was considerably reinforced with the establishment of the Investigation Section within the Office of Internal Audit. The OVC took specific actions to model its operating procedures and practices according to quality standards and best practices. It also took the lead in other activities related to implementation of the IFAD anticorruption policy, which included organizing an external review of the Fund’s investigation and sanction processes. The review prompted a major institutional reform of IFAD’s legal framework and procedures for conducting investigations and imposing sanctions, including the disbanding of the OVC, redefinition of the role of the Office of Internal Audit (renamed the Office of Audit and Oversight), establishment of a sanctions committee, and development of debarment procedures. These changes were introduced in early 2007, aligning IFAD with best practices applied by other United Nations agencies and the major multilateral development banks in this area.

Vincular la gobernanza de la tierra y la del agua

junio 2006
Garantizar a los pobres de las zonas rurales el acceso tanto a la tierra como al agua es fundamental para alcanzar los objetivos de desarrollo del Milenio, en especial la meta de reducir a la mitad para 2015 el número de personas que viven en situación de pobreza extrema y padecen hambre, la mayoría de las cuales dependen de la agricultura para su sustento. Sin embargo, en los debates internacionales las cuestiones de la tierra y el agua se siguen abordando por separado, y en ellos se considera un problema la notable utilización de agua para uso agrícola.

First mile project - factsheet 2

marzo 2006
El proyecto Primera Milla se ocupa del modo en que los pequeños agricultores, comerciantes, elaboradores y otros agentes de las zonas rurales pobres aprenden a crear cadenas de comercialización que vinculan a los productores con los consumidores. La existencia de buenos medios de comunicación es un factor fundamental. En el marco del proyecto se alienta a las personas que viven en comunidades rurales aisladas a utilizar teléfonos móviles, correo electrónico e Internet para compartir sus experiencias y buenas prácticas locales y aprender así unas de otras. Si bien la tecnología de las comunicaciones es importante, la clave del éxito depende del fomento de la confianza y la colaboración a lo largo de las cadenas de comercialización. El objetivo final consiste en que los agricultores y otros agentes que participan en esas cadenas adquieran experiencia y conocimientos importantes a nivel local y los compartan, incluso con personas que viven en comunidades alejadas, para encontrar nuevas ideas
