IFAD's partners in Cameroon


IFAD has formed a number of partnerships in Cameroon, especially in the area of policy dialogue. With the establishment of a country office in January 2011, IFAD plans to strengthen consultation with the Government and develop synergies with other stakeholders in development, the public and private sector in Cameroon, NGOs, producers’ and civil society organizations.

IFAD will also foster the development of public-private producers’ organizations along the value chain to enable small producers to access stable and lucrative markets.

IFAD partners in Cameroon

IFAD has developed many partnerships in Cameroon, particularly in connection with building policy consensus. Lacking an office in Cameroon, IFAD has opted for a solid, targeted partnership with the public sector and with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) such as producers’ organizations and those of civil society. The organization has also forged strong links with bilateral and international donors, leading to cofinancing arrangements for projects.

IFAD takes part in the process of formulating policies and strategies on rural development, along with other institutions. In cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and France, for instance, the Fund is working to build capacity among farmers’ organizations to give producers’ organizations a greater role in implementing the government’s rural sector development strategy.
