​From aid to trade!

Smallholder farmers play an important role in ensuring global food security. Yet they often struggle to make a living, sometimes because they are not able to build or maintain effective relationships with support services, consumers and other buyers of their produce.

ICRA is constantly developing new ways of improving smallholder livelihoods and inclusive agribusiness, bringing smallholder farmers, entrepreneurs, and support services together to jointly improve their businesses.

With your commercial outlook, you are going to shape the future of this unique organization! It is your assignment to transform ICRA into a strong financially independent organization that can flourish in a rapidly changing and increasingly competitive market.

ICRA strengthens innovation capacity of the agribusiness/rural development sector by training trainers, facilitators and coaches, who can broker partnerships, build trust and facilitate effective relations between agribusiness partners and business support services.

In the Global North and South, ICRA works with government departments, research institutes, universities, development agencies, business support services, farmer organizations and the private sector, constantly developing new ways of improving smallholder livelihoods and inclusive agribusiness.

ICRA’s headquarter is in Wageningen in the Netherlands and the Executive Director reports to an international Supervisory Board.
