About Us

The Global Donor Platform for Rural Development is a network of 40 bilateral and multilateral development agencies, international financing institutions, intergovernmental organisations and foundations.

The Platform was formed in 2003 through the collective action to lobby for increased public and private investments in agriculture and rural development. The promotion of development effectiveness for inclusive and sustainable rural transformation as a prime objective of the Platform derives from the global call to implement Agenda 2030 and the agreement on Finance for Development by the international community and developing countries.

Human Development Report 2021/22

The report is the third and final instalment in a trilogy, following the 2019 report on inequalities and the 2020 report on the risks of the Anthropocene. The 2021/22 report shares insights into how the COVID-19 pandemic, the war in Ukraine, climate change, and the cost-of-living crisis have generated a new “uncertainty complex,” which is reversing human development and unsettling lives globally.


State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2022

This year’s report should dispel any lingering doubts that the world is moving backwards in its efforts to end hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition in all its forms. We are now only eight years away from 2030, but the distance to reach many of the SDG 2 targets is growing wider each year.
