IFAD targeting policy: Reaching the rural poor

The purpose of the present targeting policy is to:

  • provide a clear definition of IFAD’s target group and establish a shared conceptual understanding of targeting;
  • outline the general principles that will guide IFAD in identifying and reaching the target group, and the methods and means that it will use to this end; and
  • provide an overview of how targeting will be addressed in the context of IFAD’s operational instruments.

The policy also provides the framework for the subsequent development of operational guidelines.
