It’s the end of the year, and we’re jumping headfirst into 2023.

First, we introduce a soon-to-be familiar face: our new president, Alvaro Lario, who talks about his plans for IFAD.

We then turn to Satu Santala, Associate Vice-President of the External Relations and Governance Department at IFAD, who talks to us about the year ahead and the agency’s priorities for the upcoming funding cycle. She also tells us about the Global Donor Platform for Rural Development, a crucial network of donors focusing on one of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals: zero hunger. Earlier this year we spoke to some of these donors about the platform, and now we revisit these conversations to hear about the issues that matter the most to them.

We take a look at the problem of gender-based violence as the Global 16 Days Campaign against GBV concludes. We talk to a gender expert about the impact of violence against women at the community level, and the ways we can address it. Wrapping up the episode is the third instalment of our Bangladesh series with Qasa Alom.

This is Farms.Food.Future – a podcast that's Good for You, Good for the Planet and Good for Farmers brought to you by the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
