'United Nations' is a name[edit]

'United Nations' is a name, not a description. 'International Business Machines' is another example of a name (as opposed to a description). The expression 'the United Nations' is therefore confused language, like it also would be mistaken to refer to IBM as 'the International Business Machines'.

It would improve the language of this article if United Nations were properly referred to by using its name as just that, a name. That is to say one should refer to UN as simply 'United Nations', and avoid referring to it as 'the United Nations'. Of course this also applies to 'International Fund for Agricultural Development' (a name, not a description). -- (talk) 03:04, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Suggested corrections to Controversy section text[edit]

The following corrections are suggested to text under the heading "Controversy."

The sentence "The controversy was so great Italy threatened to pull its funding even though IFAD is headquartered in Rome.[10]" is not accurately presented. As indicated in the article that follows, it would be more accurate to say "The controversy was so great Italy threatened to pull its contribution to an annual meeting held at IFAD headquarters."


Concerning the sentence "The Australian government had already withdrawn from funding in 2007 due to similar concerns.[11]" I would ask that it be removed entirely since Australia's actions were not related to the controversy about Nwanze’s payment. This document from 2011 outlines the reasons why Australia withdrew from IFAD in 2004 but also states that those concerns have either been resolved or are of less significance now, and suggests there is a strong business case for Australia to re-join IFAD.
