To enhance the impact of development investments in agriculture, food systems and rural livelihoods through informed policy and programming.

About us

Intro [ID: 35]

The Platform provides a discussion forum for programmatic and institutional innovations and donor priorities in line with 2030 Agenda. The focus is on several different areas that address the dramatically changing rural transformation processes. By highlighting specific dynamics we aim to match opportunities of donor agencies and international finance institutions. Ultimately the work of the Platform supports the creation of more synergies that contribute to the implementation of the SDGs and to an inclusive rural transformation process.
