Main emphasis of management:
Promotion of prosperity in the rural communities.

After his election in 2002, Dr. Chelston Brathwaite launched a process of institutional reform to transform IICA into a modern development institution at the service of its Member States cognizant of the fact that the Institute had to be strengthened to maintain its technical excellence and leadership in the agricultural community of the Americas.  At the core of the transformation was a new technical cooperation model keyed to strengthening the relationship between the Institute and its Member States.

 At the Third Summit of the Americas, held in Quebec City in April 2001, the head of state and government of the hemisphere recognized that agriculture and rural life have a vital role to play in alleviating poverty and in boosting overall development in the countries.  As a result, IICA’s role was expanded to include responsibilities. In addition to providing technical cooperation, it was to contribute to promoting dialogue and developing consensus in the hemisphere on aspects of critical importance to agricultural development and rural well-being.
