CATIE's mission is to reduce rural poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean by promoting competitive and sustainable agriculture and natural resource management through higher education, research, and technical cooperation. By partnering with The Tropics Foundation, you can work to ensure the growth of CATIE, one of only a handful of regional institutions in the world combining scientific research, graduate education, and training as it rolls up its sleeves to direct hands-on projects that produce tangible results.
