Technical Center for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation ACP-EU (CTA)

39, rue Montoyer
1000 Brussels, Belgium

The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) is an ACP-EU institution working in the field of information for development. We operate under the ACP-EU Cotonou Agreement and our headquarters are in The Netherlands. When it was set up, in 1984, CTA was given the challenging task of improving the flow of information among stakeholders in agricultural and rural development in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries.Our work focuses on three key areas:providing information products and services (e.g., publications, question-and-answer services and database services);promoting the integrated use of communication channels, old and new, to improve the flow of information (e.g., e-communities, web portals, seminars, and study visits);building ACP capacity in information and communication management (ICM), mainly through training and partnerships with ACP bodies.At the core of all our activities are our 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.
