The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) continued in 2005 to promote the economic advancement of the rural poor by providing low-interest loans and grants. The twenty-eighth session of the Governing Council (Rome, Italy, 15-18 February) focused on providing assistance in the processing and marketing of agricultural goods and responding to the needs created by the December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami [YUN 2004, p. 952] and the October 2005 Pakistan earthquake (see p. 1034). In 2005, IFAD membership increased to 164 states, of which 23 were in List A (developed countries), 12 in List B (oil-exporting developing countries) and 129 in List C (other developing countries). Of the latter, 49 were in Sub-List C1 (Africa), 49 in Sub-List C2 (Europe, Asia and the Pacific) and 31 in Sub-List C3 (Latin America and the Caribbean).
