Food Security Fund
In 2010, the IDB approved a US$ 3,5 million Food Security Fund (FOD) to provide non-reimbursable technical assistance to Bank borrowing member countries to improve agricultural production, productivity, and food trade as a means to enhance their food security.
The FOD finances non-reimbursable national and regional technical cooperation operations that directly increase the volume and quality of Bank lending directed to building food security.
Areas financed include agricultural research and innovation; sanitary, phytosanitary and food safety systems; secure land and assets property rights framework; rural financial and risk management services; better access to agricultural input and output markets; and the adaptation of the region’s agriculture sector to climate change impacts.
