After the election, Ambassador Fátima Jardim, permanent representative of Angola to IFAD, recalled the importance of the organization in strengthening the aid given to its members so that in 10 years the goal of "zero hunger" has been achieved.

It is important to find measures to help combat the difficulties arising from climate change, said the responsible, cited by Angop, adding that the work done by IFAD in order to eradicate poverty in rural areas has been praiseworthy.

In our country, about two thirds of the population works in agriculture and funding from IFAD has helped the government to improve the quality of life of citizens.

IFAD is an agency of the United Nations (UN), based in Rome, and its mission is to help rural populations with financial problems fight poverty.
