The Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) is the specialised agency for agriculture of the Inter-American System that supports the efforts of Member States to achieve agricultural development and rural well-being.
The Institute provides cooperation services through close and permanent work with its 34 Member States, addressing their needs in a timely manner. Without a doubt, IICA’s most valuable asset is the close relationship it maintains with the beneficiaries of its work. We have broad experience in areas such as technology and innovation for agriculture, agricultural health, food safety and quality, international agricultural trade, family farming, rural development, natural resource management and the bio-economy.
IICA is the executing agency for the 11th EDF Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) Measures Project, which aims to increase compliance by CARIFORUM States with international SPS measures, standards and procedures to increase international and regional market access.
