International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) ‒ IFAD
Rome, Italy

This organisation may not be a traditional think tank. We have included it in this list as we deem it to be a 'boundary' organisation – in other words, it might have some qualities or characterstics of a think tank.

IFAD is an international financial institution and specialised United Nations agency based in Rome, the UN’s food and agriculture hub. Its core work is aimed at empowering rural people to increase their food security, the nutrition of their families and their income. However, IFAD also engages in publishing research, tools and guidelines and briefs. Its research topics include COVID-19, nutrition, climate and environment, gender, water, fisheries and aquaculture, farmers’ organisations, youth and crops, among several others.
