Institute’s ongoing project seeks to build resilience in the country's agricultural and rural sectors
PROMECAFE, an initiative supported by IICA, held a symposium with 330 participants from 14 countries across the region, which is home to more than one million coffee-farming families.
Collaboration with international agencies, the rebuilding of protected environments and the rehabilitation of agricultural chains are areas for immediate attention.
The SRI methodology, which reduces the economic cost and environmental impact of rice farming, is contributing to renewing production on farms in Costa Rica and other Latin American countries.
The joint work between the two entities will prioritize the promotion of climate-smart technologies and the strengthening of agricultural value chains.
The Director General of the IICA participated on Seminar in Buenos Aires. Participants at the event analyzed the contribution of agriculture to climate change mitigation and the manner in which countries of the Southern Cone contribute to improving the net carbon balance of soils.
