CATIE is a center that specializes in formulating integral solutions to address the complexity of the current problems that agriculture and natural resources are facing in Latin America and the Caribbean.
This task can only be done effectively by developing and implementing systemic approaches in close collaboration with partners and allies at all levels.
The research carried out by CATIE takes a systemic approach. Our starting point is a holistic assessment of problems and opportunities in rural areas. We maintain some specialized lines of research whose implementation and dissemination of results is framed in projects using systemic approaches that contribute integrally to achieving sustainable and inclusive human welfare.
