Germany pledges €20 million at COP 23 to help smallholders fight climate change
At COP 23 the German government announced that it is pledging €20 million in climate finance to the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) to help smallholder farmers in developing countries deal with the impacts of climate change and improve their food security.
“With this financial pledge from the Federal Republic of Germany, IFAD will be able to channel additional resources to those who need it most,” said IFAD Associate-Vice President, Périn Saint Ange.
“These funds will not only help in our efforts to adapt smallholder agriculture to climate change but they will have additional benefits related to other important cross-cutting issues like gender equality, youth unemployment and nutrition security,” added Saint Ange.
