IFAD’s fourth Strategic Framework covers the period 2011-2015. It presents IFAD’s overarching goal, objectives and areas of thematic focus. It also articulates the principles of engagement that will guide operations and how IFAD will deliver against the framework. This Strategic Framework has been prepared in response to a global context characterized both by persistent problems and major changes. The former include persistent rural poverty on a massive scale, with close to 1 billion rural people living on less than US$1.25 per day, and a high prevalence of food insecurity and hunger in some regions. The latter include increasingly diverse rural livelihoods; accelerating natural resource degradation and climate change; the growing economic importance of agriculture and rising demand for food, biofuels, and other agricultural goods and services; higher and more volatile food prices; and growing private-sector investment in agriculture.
