The Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) recognises the importance of the Caribbean Week of Agriculture (CWA) as the leading event on the region’s agricultural calendar and welcomes the opportunities the event presents to create strategic partnerships.

As preparations heighten for the hosting of the event 4 – 8 October 2021, under the theme ‘Transforming our Food Systems’, IICA Deputy Director, Mr. Lloyd Day highlighted the role his organization is playing in the virtual event. The organisation, which conceptualised the CWA and has been a key partner from its inception in 1999 is providing logistical, financial and technical support. In addition, IICA will host a number of webinars, for example, on African Swine Fever, sanitary and phyto-sanitary compliance and climate resilience.
