IFAD's work on climate and environment

COP 23 - UN climate change conference

Governments will convene in Bonn, Germany to train the world’s attention on fulfilling the goals set out in the Paris Agreement.

Trees of hope

An IFAD-supported project in Kenya is planting over two million trees to help rural communities combat the threat of drought.

Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme

Launched in 2012, the Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP) channels climate and environmental finance to enable smallholder farmers who participate in IFAD projects to increase resilience. Through ASAP, IFAD is systematically integrating climate resilience into the overall IFAD portfolio.

Recipes for Change

Nothing unites us more than our universal need for food. Whether in New York or Paris or a small farm in Kenya, we all want to sit down with our families and friends at the end of the day and share some well-deserved sustenance. Recipes for Change wants to be part of that coming together.

The Global Environment Facility (GEF)

The GEF brings together 183 countries, the private sector, civil society organizations (CSOs) and international institutions to address the growing global environmental problem. Since its creation in 1991, the GEF has worked on the protection of the global environment and promoted environmentally sustainable development.

Pro-Poor Resource Governance under Changing Climates

It is difficult for smallholder farmers to adapt to climate change with actions focused only on the environment. This study by IFAD, the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) and partners shows that successful adaptation to a changing environment also requires changes in social and political processes.

IFAD's Social, Environmental and Climate Assessment Procedures (SECAP)

The Social, Environmental and Climate Assessment Procedures (SECAP), approved in December 2014, will address the social, environmental and climate impacts associated with its projects and programmes. Find out more about what this means here.

Poor rural people face a series of interconnected natural resources management challenges. They are in the front line of climate change impacts; the ecosystems on which they rely are increasingly degraded, their access to suitable agricultural land is declining, their forest resources are increasingly restricted and degraded, many produce on marginal rain fed land, with increased water scarcity; and declining fish and marine resources threaten essential sources of income and nutrition.

  • Biomimic Tree - Pushing Agriculture Up the Agenda @COP23

  • This episode of Recipes for Change is about cooking with sorghum - a crop that has been neglected in Kenya in favour of the more popular maize. Now, with low rainfall causing maize harvests to fail, drought-tolerant sorghum is making a resurgence and celebrity chef Ali Artiste sees how sorghum recipes are being rediscovered in rural areas.

  • In this episode of Recipes for Change, Mozambican chef Rogério Matusse travels to drought-affected areas of his country to examine how climate-smart farming techniques are preserving traditional crops and traditional recipes.
