CTA Policy Briefs

The peer reviewed CTA Policy Briefs address a broad range of agricultural and rural development-related issues. Topics presented are taken from findings and conclusions from the Brussels Development Briefings, Regional Development Briefings and key CTA events. They are available in print and online in English and French.

In contrast to other policy briefs, these provide essential information not only for the policy maker but for all those involved in furthering agricultural and rural development. They should help to initiate greater dialogue between those creating policies and those in the field in ACP countries
