Previously, we felt like the semi-arid regions were almost impossible to live in. Today, this conception has changed and we see our land as a place full of potential. We are happy to see that it is worth it to stay here and invest in this place. We don’t need to migrate anymore.” Naelson Medeiros, head of Sombras Grandes’ agriculture association, supported by the project Dom Helder Câmara II.

WHY BRAZIL? In the last decades, Brazil’s poverty has been decreasing significantly through public programs and policies. However, more than 18 million people still live below the poverty line - a reality which is even more evident in the northeastern semi-arid regions, highly dependent on family agriculture. Although farming activity plays a relatively small role in the GDP, the country occupies the sixth place when it comes to global agriculture production. Besides, agriculture is important in terms of export (36% total) and employs 15% of the work force in this country, from which 10% are family agriculture workers, responsible for 70% of the food volume consumed in Brazil. Because of that, the investment in this area is even more important.

PRINCIPLES OF ACTION FOCUS AND GENDER EQUALITY The most vulnerable groups in rural areas, including traditional communities and settlements from land reform, particularly women and young people, are focused when it comes to IFAD activity. IFAD, with their diverse range of activities, seeks to benefit these groups directly. EMPOWERMENT Poor rural families’ access to territory development public policies and programs, technical assistance, extension, credit and support to commerce and land reform, is one of the main activity pillars of IFAD in Brazil. Through such actions, IFAD seeks to empower families individually and collectively, as well as raising their importance. INNOVATE, LEARN AND ESCALATE Good and innovative practices in the social technologies field benefit the living in semiarid regions and promote rural development. These qualities are identified in the fields and disseminated through activities, thematic studies, seminars and exchange programs. Following this approach, IFAD strives to contribute in social educational processes aimed towards sustainable development. PARTNERSHIPS IFAD’s partnership network makes it possible to face the challenges of the semi-arid regions. Its activity occurs through collaboration with the government, organizations, societies, companies and agencies, especially the regional government, seeking opportunities for coordinating and co-financing rural populations. More than 60 partners collaborated actively for the construction of IFAD’s current six projects.
