DONOR PLATFORM
FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT

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.

About us [ID: 3]

The Global Donor Platform for Rural Development is a network of 40 bilateral and multilateral donors, international financing institutions, intergovernmental organisations, development agencies and foundations. In 2015, the Platform adopted the new vision of prosperous rural communities underpinning global food and nutrition security. The members continue to share a common vision that is framed around pathways to achieve ‘zero hunger’. These must be economically, socially and environmentally sustainable, centred on the capacity of agriculture and rural livelihoods to generate economic growth and job creation, to address inequalities and to underpin national, regional and global food and nutrition security.
