The Agritourism Policy setting workshop objectives are to identify, develop and strengthen linkages between the agriculture and tourism sectors, and improving synergies with other key productive sectors.
Workshop Policy Setting for Improved Linkages Between Agriculture and Tourism in Saint Vincent & the Grenadines
The expected outcomes of these national agritourism workshops will be the establishment of a national agritourism taskforce to help steer the development of this agenda among the stakeholders, the drafting of strategies to guide agritourism development and elaboration of project proposals to attract external support and resources.
As the specialised agency of the Inter-American System for agriculture, the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) supports the efforts of the Member States to achieve agricultural development and rural well-being. The Institute provides its cooperation through daily, close and permanent collaboration with its 34 Member States, whose needs it addresses expeditiously in order to achieve increasingly inclusive, competitive and sustainable agriculture. Without a doubt, IICA’s most valuable asset is the close relationship it maintains with the beneficiaries of its work. Since our institution was founded, we have acquired a wealth of experience in areas such as technology and innovation for agriculture, agricultural health and food safety, agribusiness, agricultural trade, rural development, natural resource management and training.

Its mission is to advance food security, resilience and inclusive economic growth in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific through innovations in sustainable agriculture. CTA operates under the framework of the Cotonou Agreement and is funded by the EU.
