May 23, 2017



CTA was established in 1983 under the Lomé Convention between the ACP countries and EU member states. Since 2000 CTA has operated within the framework of the ACP-EU Cotonou Agreement with a mission to strengthen policy and institutional capacity development and information and communication management capacities of ACP agricultural and rural development organisations. It assists such organisations in formulating and implementing policies and programmes to reduce poverty, promote sustainable food security, preserve the natural resource base and thus contribute to building self-reliance in ACP rural and agricultural development. It is headquartered in Wageningen, the Netherlands.
