Towards strengthening cooperation with IFAD

Font size - A A A +

On 29 and 30 November 2018, a delegation from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), an international financial institution and specialised United Nations agency based in Rome, Italy, visited the OIE Headquarters to explore areas of mutual interest for collaboration and signed a letter of intent. This letter is a first step towards strengthening cooperation between the two organisations, which identified many topics of common interest.

As a continuation of this meeting, the Director General of the OIE participated in the 42nd Session of IFAD’s Governing Council, held on 14–15 February 2019, and in a side event on the global peste des petits ruminants (PPR) eradication programme. Furthermore, Ms Charlotte Salford, Associate Vice President, External Relations and Governance Department, represented IFAD at the 87th General Session of the World Assembly of OIE Delegates, held from 26 to 31 May 2019.
