Investing in rural people in Madagascar

Since 1979, IFAD has funded 17 rural development projects in Madagascar for a total of US$434.285 million. Four projects are currently ongoing.

The goal of the IFAD country programme strategy 2022-2026 is to contribute to the transformation of rural areas, food systems and nutrition security through sustainable improvement of incomes for vulnerable rural people, while building their resilience to climate shocks.

Two complementary strategic objectives support the overall approach:

  • Improving climate-resilient production systems for increased productivity of family farms and rural microenterprises

  • Strengthening agricultural value chains and improved access to inclusive financing for targeted rural producers and organizations.
