IFAD’s goal is to empower poor young rural women and men in developing countries to improve their incomes and food security.  It is a specialized agency of the United Nations dedicated to eradicating rural poverty in developing countries. Improving the nutritional level of the poorest populations in developing countries is a principal objective of the Agreement establishing IFAD. IFAD addresses the need for improved nutrition through its investments which target small holder farmers and rural communities.

IFAD intends to improve the way it monitors and assesses its own project experiences, synthesizing lessons learned and developing good practices to share across projects and incorporate into design and implementation as well as policy discussions. To achieve this, IFAD will address project level gaps in the use of valid nutrition indicators. This will include developing new indicators as appropriate, including a "whole of the diet" outcome  indicator. 

The proposed project will last 3.5 years and will be implemented in IFAD’s Asia and Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean and East and Southern Africa divisions specifically in: Ethiopia, Bolivia and Laos.  These countries represent three regions where the problem of nutrition varies from undernutrition to over-nutrition.
