Rural poverty network funding
The UN International Fund for Agriculture (IFAD) has approved a grant to expand and support a knowledge network to connect development partners working on initiatives to reduce rural poverty in Western, Central, Eastern and Southern Africa. The network known FIDAfrique-IFADAfrica, which has operated since 1999, will allow members to share lessons learned, experiences and ideas for development. In HOORC's Library you can find Rural livelihoods and poverty reduction policies edited by Frank Ellis and H. Ade Freeman.
