Empowering Rural Women & Youth - with IFAD President Gilbert Houngbo

Season 1, Ep. 1

Born and raised in rural Togo, Gilbert F. Houngbo, President of the International Fund for Agricultural Development, has spent more than 30 years working to improve the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable people. We caught up with him in Stockholm to discuss the importance of investing in women, how his upbringing has shaped his passion for working with smallholder farmers and why it’s time for the international community to stop the talk and start walking the walk on making youth in rural areas a priority.
