Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture

The Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) provides technical cooperation, innovation and specialized knowledge to contribute to the competitive and sustainable development of agriculture in the 34 member states of the Caribbean and Latin America, and to improve the lives of rural dwellers in the member countries. The Institute's four Flagship Projects focus on Competitiveness and sustainability of agribusiness chains, Rural inclusion, Family agriculture, and Resilience and management of risk. The Institute's main strength lies in its technical capacities and its stable presence in the hemisphere, through both its Headquarters and its offices in the countries. As a result, its plans and its outcomes come together in the form of findings, public goods and practical, timely and high-quality responses at all four geographic levels, and above all in what could be called "on-the-ground solutions.
