2010 was particularly important for CTA. We developed a Strategic Plan for the next 5 years, ‘Empowering Rural ACP Communities through Knowledge’. This will ensure that we focus on the critical issues facing agriculture and marshall our efforts through knowledge sharing, networking and capacity building. Agriculture can – indeed must – play a pivotal role in helping nations and communities to increase their income, reduce poverty and tackle malnutrition. Three-quarters of the world’s poor people live in rural areas and most depend on agriculture for their livelihoods and survival. The world must increase food production by at least 70% to feed the projected population of 9 billion people by 2050, without damaging further the natural resource base on which agriculture depends.
