IFAD Strategic Framework 2016-2025
IFAD’s fifth Strategic Framework presents the overarching goal, principles of engagement, strategic objectives, outcomes and pillars of results delivery that will guide IFAD’s operations over the 2016-2025 period.
It situates IFAD in the evolving global context and articulates its contribution to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (Agenda 2030).
Agenda 2030 offers clear evidence that IFAD’s mandate of investing in rural people and enabling inclusive and sustainable transformation of rural areas, notably through smallholder agriculture-led growth, is of absolute global relevance today and over the coming decade.
After several years of growth and reform, IFAD is now recognized for its experience, knowledge and performance in this domain; it stands ready to achieve greater impact and it is well positioned to play a larger role in helping countries fulfil their priorities relative to Agenda 2030.
