At the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) we invest in rural people, empowering them to increase their food security, improve the nutrition of their families and increase their incomes. We help them build resilience, expand their businesses and take charge of their own development. IFAD works where poverty and hunger are deepest: in the most remote regions of developing countries and fragile situations, where few development agencies venture.
For IFAD, photography is a powerful tool that can be used to advocate for poor rural people, raise global awareness of rural poverty and how we are fighting it. Todd’s friendly personality, enquiring mind and strong background in environmental and social sciences makes him a natural in capturing the essence of people’s lives and livelihoods in the rural setting. While safeguarding their dignity and humanity, Todd’s photography beautifully brings to the forefront IFAD’s advocacy work and the issues that concern poor rural people.
