Last week, at the international conference on innovative approaches to financing for rural development hosted by IFAD and partners, a new network was announced.

The Smallholder Agriculture Finance and Investment Network (SAFIN) will help bridge the estimated US$150 billion financing gap that prevents small rural producers and businesses in developing countries from growing their operations and strengthening rural economies. It will bring together private, public and philanthropic sectors and rural farmers and enterprises to resolve rural financing challenges with coordinated action and investment.

“It is not just more finance that is needed, but smarter and more targeted finance,” said IFAD's President Kanayo F. Nwanze. “The result will not only improve the lives and livelihoods of rural people, it will truly be a greater global good – contributing to a world of greater prosperity, well-being and security,” he added.

“In Colombia, rural development is not possible without peace, but peace will simply not be possible without rural development because one of the main reasons for the conflict was the neglect that Colombia’s rural people suffered,” said Jesús Quintana, IFAD Coordinator for the Andean Sub-region.
