CTA - Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation


CTA develops and provides services that improve access to information for agricultural and rural development, and strengthens capacities of ACP countries to produce, acquire, exchange and utilise information in this area. It is an ACP-EU organisation 2014 marks CTA’s 30th anniversary. It’s an important milestone that allows us to recognise the contribution of our numerous national, regional and international partners. By working together, we’ve given agricultural and rural communities across African, Caribbean and Pacific countries the vital skills they need for improving agricultural productivity, sustainability and access to markets. This anniversary also lets us recognise the generous support of our sponsors – the European Union and the ACP Group – over the last three decades.

We’ve come a long way as an organisation. In fact, helping transform smallholder agriculture into a profitable and sustainable business in the ACP countries has never been as exciting. CTA is working with its partners on a host of issues ranging from getting young people interested in farming to improving access to markets and finance, developing inclusive value chains, enhancing food and nutrition security policies, building resilient agriculture, and harnessing information and communication technologies (ICTs) for the benefit of smallholders.

This is why we’ve chosen our anniversary theme to be, ‘Knowledge is…Transformation, competitiveness, prosperity, resilience and food’ – a positive message about sharing and creating access to research and training. As part of our 2014 celebrations, we have also just published our Stories for Change book. Containing three decades of inspirational tales from around ACP, it demonstrates how the pure power of knowledge changes lives for the better.
