OUR WORK

Strategic objectives

The four strategic objectives organize and systematize the countries’ development strategies and, consequently, IICA’s technical cooperation actions. The objectives are as follows:

  • 1. Increase the contributions of the agriculture sector to economic growth and sustainable development.
  • 2. Contribute to the well-being of all rural dwellers.
  • 3. Improve international and regional trade for countries in the region.
  • 4. Increase the resilience of rural areas and agrifood systems to extreme events.

Our model prioritizes triangular cooperation and South-South cooperation, and is geared towards efficiency, flexibility, decentralization, collaborative work and networking, with a focus on processes as well as the mobilization of human, institutional and financial resources.

Our roadmap is based on seven hemispheric programs, which lend uniqueness to IICA’s vision; channel the Institute’s programmatic actions toward the identification of cooperation actions through the design and implementation of projects; and provide technical advice and assistance to governments and other social and economic stakeholders involved in agricultural and rural life in the Americas.

The seven hemispheric programs are:

  • 1. Innovation and Bioeconomy
  • 2. Territorial Development and Family Farming
  • 3. International Trade and Regional Integration
  • 4. Climate Action and Agricultural Sustainability
  • 5. Agricultural Health, Safety and Agrifood Quality
  • 6. Digitalization of Agrifood Systems
  • 7. Gender Equality and Youth
