[REUTERS] IFAD could become a partner of the IMF’s $45 billion lending initiative, the Resilience and Sustainability Trust (RST), bringing its expertise on how small-scale producers and farmers cope with climate change in vulnerable countries, the incoming IFAD president told Reuters.

“The IMF needs implementing partners and is still in the process of deciding how that works,” said Alvaro Lario. “We could participate through the climate adaption angle of the RST.”
