CTA is hosting a knowledge management workshop as part of the ‘Capitalisation of Experiences for Greater Impact in Rural Development’ project between 5 and 9 February 2018 in the Fijian capital of Suva. The 3-year project started in April 2016 with the aim to facilitate the wider use of experience capitalisation processes in rural development initiatives, as an approach for continuous learning, improvement and scaling up.
Capitalisation of Experiences for Greater Impact in Rural Development - Pacific region
Le Centre technique de coopération agricole et rurale (CTA) est une institution internationale conjointe des États du Groupe ACP (Afrique, Caraïbes, Pacifique) et de l’Union européenne (UE). Il intervient dans les pays ACP pour améliorer la sécurité alimentaire, la résilience et la croissance économique à travers des innovations durables dans le domaine agricole. Le CTA opère dans le cadre de l’Accord de Cotonou et est financé par l’UE.
Achieving food security for all is at the heart of FAO's efforts – to make sure people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. FAO's three main goals are: the eradication of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition; the elimination of poverty and the driving forward of economic and social progress for all; and, the sustainable management and utilization of natural resources, including land, water, air, climate and genetic resources for the benefit of present and future generations.
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.
The Pacific Community (SPC) is the principal scientific and technical organisation in the Pacific region, proudly supporting development since 1947. We are an international development organisation owned and governed by our 26 country and territory members. Much of our focus is on major cross-cutting issues, such as climate change, disaster risk management, food security, gender equality, human rights, non-communicable diseases and youth employment. Using a multi-sector approach in responding to our members’ development priorities, we draw upon skills and capabilities from around the region and internationally, and support the empowerment of Pacific communities and sharing of expertise and skills between countries and territories.
