What we do

Technological training and capacity building for agribusiness

CIITTA is an organization that acts as an overseas education center leading education and technical training programs to train professional rural managers.

We operate with a focus on improving the productivity and quality of agricultural products, using the best global practices adapted to the needs of different regions of Africa and South and Central America.

Agricultural sustainability management

Disseminate the best agricultural practices with economic, environmental and social sustainability.

The trainings are oriented towards the norms and procedures that must be observed by the rural producers to guarantee the production of food in sustainable production systems.

The production will ensure economically viable activities, which minimize impacts on the environment and promote social inclusion.

Increase agricultural productivity in the scope of South-South cooperation

CIITTA works to develop agricultural production in the southern hemisphere, especially in those countries located in the tropical belt, while promoting and disseminating new agricultural production practices carried out on a sustainable basis, encouraging the proper use of land and natural resources

Training and capacity building in practice

CIITTA aims to make technicians and extension workers able to spread the best agricultural production and processing practices in their countries of origin, through a stimulating learning process in the absorption of new knowledge and skills.

All training is structured in order to improve knowledge through practical classes administered on CIITTA’s own campuses.

Technical cooperation

CIITTA has technical cooperation with the main research and technological diffusion entities in Brazil to ensure the dissemination of best practices and access to new technologies in the sector.

Our Mission

Strengthen the technical and organizational capacity of agricultural technicians and extension workers in the scope of south-south cooperation, guided by the existing demand along the value chains, represented by agricultural production, livestock and processing steps.

Our Vision

Become an institution of world reference in the transfer of agricultural technology, contributing significantly to increase food security in the countries of south-south cooperation.

1.

Sustainable agricultural and livestock production.

2.

Food processing with quality and compliance with market standards.

3.

Development of technological innovations aimed at small producers.

Nigeria Showcase

In partnership with the Getúlio Vargas Foundation’s division in Europe, FGV Europe, CIITTA is structuring the training and qualification of technicians and extension workers for the “Green Imperative” project, the largest agricultural project in Africa, which is being developed in Nigeria.

Brazil - Nigeria Cooperation
Project on Agriculture
The Green Imperative

The “Green Imperative Project” was born from a Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2018 between the Getúlio Vargas Foundation (FGV) and the government of Nigeria. It involves agricultural technology cooperation between Brazil and Nigeria for the development of the largest agricultural project in the African continent. The project prioritizes the development of sustainable, low-carbon agriculture, and aims to develop local production of basic foods for the local population.

A high priority project for the Nigerian government, it aims to increase food and reduce rural exodus, contributing to social peace.

The Brazilian technological package will be adopted to improve the productivity and quality of food produced by small scale farmers in Nigeria, covering the supply of agricultural machinery, equipment and services.

CITTA will play a key role in the Green Imperative’s training and capacity building activities, focusing on small and medium rural producers and national extension workers.

The dissemination of the best agro-industrial production practices to be developed by CIITTA, will aim at inclusive professional training, mainly for young people and women.

Socio-environmental

Meet socio-environmental needs, through methodologies that form a link between society and the environment, promoting transformative actions that integrate the impacted communities and the main stakeholders.

Provide the creation of values, information and knowledge, aimed at social and environmental sustainability in projects to strengthen agriculture in developing countries

We conceive in our communication actions and strategies, together with institutional partners, representatives of civil society and other actors that integrate Social Communication and Environmental Education. Our activities are carried out through:

  • Development of impact assessment methodologies;
  • Strategic communication planning;
  • Support for territorial management and governance;
  • Strengthening local development.

CIITTA Associates

CIITTA has important partners that make its activities viable from a technical-operational point of view.
These are companies and institutions that believe in our work and that actively participate in bringing technology and education to those who need it most

CIITTA Supporters

Likewise, CIITTA has supportive companies and institutions that provide the capital and resources necessary for technology transfer to be sustained in a lasting manner. Due to the help of these supporters, CIITTA can exist and bring education to the regions where it operates.
