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.IFAD is dedicated to eradicating rural poverty in developing countries and its mission is to enable poor rural people to overcome poverty.
Indigenous peoples have repeatedly asked for a more systematic dialogue with United Nations agencies. In response to this request, an Indigenous Peoples’ Forum has been established at IFAD. The first global meeting of the Indigenous Peoples' Forum at IFAD was held on 11-12 February 2013, in Rome in conjunction with IFAD Governing Council.
