On the margins of the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly, Patrick Gomes, Secretary-General of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States and Gilbert Houngbo, President of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) signed a letter of intent to intensify collaboration between the two institutions and support the implementation of development goals in their common Member States.

Following the signing ceremony, Mr Houngbo stated that “it is crucial that our synergies be strengthened, as we seek to ramp up efforts to eliminate hunger and poverty, while offering a sustainable future and an alternative to migration, to rural youth.”

Dr Patrick Gomes declared that “today marks an important day for the ACP Group, as we sign this letter of intent with the IFAD, aimed at supporting women and youth, in particular, along with the agricultural value chains. We believe that this collaboration between the two institutions will contribute to the goal of poverty reduction and promote sustainable and inclusive growth in ACP economies.”

The agreement will enable the two institutions to strengthen their synergies and complementarity, at a time when current global challenges, including the fight against hunger, migration, climate change, youth employment, and nutrition require a coordinated and heightened response.
