International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)

In 1997, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) continued to assist the rural poor—including small farmers working in marginal areas, newly privatized farmers, nomadic groups, the landless, artisanal fishing communities, indigenous peoples, women and young people—by funding projects to increase food production and incomes as well as improve nutrition, health, education and general well-being on a sustainable basis. IFAD was established in 1977 to combat hunger and rural poverty by designing and funding rural development projects in the low-income, food-deficit regions of the world.
