When: Monday 12 December, 2016

Rural development is one of the most effective ways to overcome rural poverty and to bridge the gap between rural and urban realities. Rural development has a direct impact on incomes and food and nutrition security.

Agenda 2030 explicitly recognizes the central role an inclusive rural development plays for sustainable development.

Sida and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), together with the Swedish International Agricultural Network Initiative (SIANI) welcome you to a seminar to explore this topic. The seminar will include presentation of the IFAD 2016 Rural Development Report: Fostering inclusive rural development.
