The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) is an
international organisation headquartered in Wageningen, in the
Netherlands. It was set up in the framework of the Lomé Convention (now
replaced by the Cotonou Accord) concluded between the 15 EU Member
States and 77 African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) States. Its role is
to develop and provide services to improve access to information with a
view to promoting agricultural and rural development in the ACP
countries and boosting the capacity of those countries to produce,
acquire and use information in this area.

CTA produces, amongst other activities, many information products
through print, electronic, radio and video formats. The main aim of
these products is to improve a better access to agricultural information
for ACP beneficiaries, to enhance its dissemination and to target
diverse stakeholders.
