P.O. Box 8500, Ottawa, ON, Canada K1G 3H9 The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), a specialized
agency of the United Nations, was established as an international
financial institution in 1977 as one of the major outcomes of the 1974
World Food Conference. The Conference was organized in response to
the food crises of the early 1970s that primarily affected the Sahelian
countries of Africa. Unlike other international financial institutions, which
have a broad range of objectives, the Fund has a very specific mandate:
to combat hunger and rural poverty in developing countries.
