IFDC has assisted many partners and organizations in the establishment of institutions, initiatives, associations, groups and partnerships. These organizations and initiatives prove that sustainable progress can be made in the pursuit of agricultural advancement outside of the functional field components of our projects.
Examples of IFDC’s influence can be found in all forms across the agricultural spectrum, from sustained multilateral trade policies and iconic agreements such as the Abuja Declaration to groundbreaking research and flourishing trade organizations where once there were none. These measurable, long-term effects on such a critical industry are part of IFDC’s legacy. They are made possible because of the continuing commitment of IFDC’s dedicated staff and strategic partners.
IFDC’s strategic alliances advance, improve and promote food security and agricultural sustainability in the developing world. IFDC partners with allies such as international research institutions, governmental and non-governmental agencies and the private sector to advance agricultural knowledge and establish initiatives that often become part of the agricultural lexicon due to such wide recognition of the information or initiatives.
These alliances also provide IFDC with greater opportunities for success in efforts to create positive change in such areas as agricultural research, agricultural policy development and the development of organizations to enhance the agricultural value chain.
