The Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) is adopting an innovative approach and actions to foster the economic independence and empowerment of rural women. The Institute’s decisive actions stem from the recognition of a painful reality: rural women are among the most disadvantaged group of women.
Both entities signed a cooperation agreement that will pave the way for positioning agroindustry as a driver of sustainable economic progress, prompting improvements in the quality of life of people in the Caribbean.
The agreement was signed in Buenos Aires by Ricardo Negri, President of SENASA, and Manuel Otero, Director General of the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture. It will contribute to strengthening agricultural health and the quality and safety of agrifood products, enhancing the capacities and services offered by SENASA.
The initiative will be guided by an agreement, signed in Buenos Aires by Lino Barañao, Argentina’s Secretary of Science, Technology and Production Innovation, and Manuel Otero, Director General of the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA). Argentina will be at the forefront of bioeconomy development in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Director General of the Institute, Manuel Otero, conferred the title on Paolinelli during a ceremony attended by numerous authorities, including the Brazilian Ministers of Agriculture and Citizenship, Tereza Cristina and Osmar Terra, who highlighted the Institute’s work.
The international agency specializing in agriculture and the multinational company signed a cooperation agreement with the aim of developing environmental initiatives and comprehensive solutions for Mexico’s agrifood sector.
