A real change for the better
These are exciting times. After decades of underinvestment, agriculture and rural development have moved to centre stage in the discourse on poverty and hunger. Never before has there been such a high degree of global consensus, and financial commitment, to improving agricultural productivity and increasing farmers incomes. Today agricultural growth has finally been recognised as essential to achieving food and nutritional security and increasing prosperity.
Faced with meeting the inspiring challenge of transforming agriculture into an engine of sustainable growth for the ACP countries, CTA has developed a bold new strategy for 2011-2015.
As a leading international organisation providing support for networking, knowledge-sharing and capacity-building to the agri-cultural and rural development community, CTA, with the support of its partners, can help to bring about real change for the better.
