2019 Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation Social Media Internship

2019 Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation Social Media Internship

After many years of neglect, agriculture is back on the global agenda as a major vehicle for poverty reduction and economic growth and so this renewed interest bodes well for CTA’s work.

At CTA, the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Co-operation, we believe that investment in the right innovations in agriculture will help to catalyse development.

Digitalisation is also at the heart of climate-smart agriculture. Many solutions that can help agricultural systems to adapt and mitigate the effects of climate change have emerged.

The challenge is in the delivery of these solutions to farmers that need them the most. CTA therefore focuses on the development of partnerships to guide the implementation of climate-smart agriculture.
