Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) has posted 1 job
Agriculture is key to meeting many of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. It is critical not only to ensure food and nutrition security for African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries, but also to create jobs for millions of young people joining the labour market each year and to contribute to economic growth and prosperity. To achieve this effectively, agriculture must be treated as a business and smallholder producers must be placed at the centre to earn a greater share of the agricultural value chain.
The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) is a joint international institution of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States and the European Union (EU).
Central to achieving our mission is our valued partnerships with ACP national and regional bodies. We also work with a wide network of ACP-EU public and private sector bodies as well as international organisations around the world.
Our mission, vision and core values are at the heart of our organisation. They inspire our people, underpin our decisions and motivate our actions.
