News IFAD and Spain to help Egyptian farmers adapt to climate change

IFAD will assist small Egyptian farmers in adapting to climate change as part of a climate change initiative approved by the Management Board of the Spanish Millennium Development Goal Fund on 17 December 2007. The initiative involves a number of United Nations agencies, each in accordance with its respective comparative advantage and mandate, in supporting the Government of Egypt’s efforts to address the challenge of climate change. Working with the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation and its research centres, IFAD will focus on improving water management and on providing drought-resistant and heat-tolerant crops to cope with the increased temperatures.
