The session is throwing the spotlight on rural transformation as a key to sustainable development. Held annually at the IFAD headquarters in Rome, the Governing Council is the Fund's main decision-making body, and includes all Member States.

This year's session will begin with a roster of distinguished keynote speakers including Tupou VI, King of Tonga and Pier Carlo Padoan, Italy's Minister for Economy and Finance.

The meeting comes at a critical time, as the process of defining a post-2015 global agenda provides opportunities to refocus policies, investments and partnerships for more inclusive, sustainable and people-centred development.

IFAD's objective in Ghana has been to reduce poverty in line with Government's economic development strategy. IFAD has approved US$271.5 million in loans and grants to support 17 projects and programmes in Ghana, and has the third largest IFAD country programme in the West and Central Africa region.

President Mahama left Accra on Sunday and will return after the ceremony today.
