The agriculture that we promote

  3. Improve agriculture’s capacity to mitigate and adapt to climate change and make better use of natural resources

A results-oriented IICA

We work actively to ensure that our technical cooperation produces the following interlinked, verifiable and measurable results:

  • Transformations: the achievement of the strategic objectives, which are the responsibility of all the sector stakeholders in each country.
  • Contributions: changes brought about by IICA’s intervention through international public goods.
  • Outputs or services: concrete deliverables or contributions of our cooperation.

Attentive to the demand from the countries

We endeavor to ensure that the international public goods support the countries in areas in which they have common needs, at four levels:

  • Hemispheric
  • Regional (Northern, Central, Andean, Southern and Caribbean regions)
  • Multinational
  • National

The organization of our work at all levels is reflected in the IICA country strategies, which make it possible to address the priorities indicated by the nations themselves.

A renewed model

We have renewed our technical cooperation model in order to obtain quality results that have an impact on agriculture in our countries. We aim to achieve measurable contributions through the following features of the model:

  • A clear definition of the Institute’s functions and capabilities
  • Cross-thematic coordination, with differentiated country strategies
  • Programmatic execution through projects
  • Use of networks of offices and technical personnel
  • Technical services and corporate management as an integral part of technical cooperation
  • Allocation of resources based on expected results
  • Rigorous evaluation of results, geared to continuous improvement
  • Intense communication and dissemination of results
