The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) is a joint international institution of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States and the European Union (EU). Our mission is to advance food and nutritional security, increase prosperity and encourage sound natural resource management in ACP countries. We provide access to information and knowledge, facilitate policy dialogue and strengthen the capacity of agricultural and rural development institutions and communities.
Central to achieving our mission is our valued partnerships with ACP national and regional bodies. We also work with a wide network of ACP-EU public and private sector bodies as well as international organisations around the world.
Our vision and core values are at the heart of our organisation. They inspire our people, underpin our decisions and motivate our actions.
