Agriterra provides quality advice, training and exchange, building on the renowned Dutch agricultural and cooperative sector. We provide these inputs via three flagship services: ‘Take your cooperative to the next level’, ‘Cooperative advisory services’ and ‘Connect farmers to policy makers’.
Our unique focus on cooperatives and farmers’ organisations, the quality obtained through experienced farmers, farm leaders and staff of cooperatives (the agripoolers), our extensive knowledge of the countries in which we operate through local presence, added to the mobilisation of the organised farmers’ network has resulted in state-of-the-art training modules. We offer them in five disciplines: Management & Organisation, Governance & Leadership, Financial Management, Business Development & Advocacy and Lobby. Our training modules provide practical know-how in more than 10 languages, with a methodology that builds on teamwork. The range of training modules matches our three-track service provision for strengthening farmer-led businesses, improving sustainable farmer services, and supporting lobbying and advocacy.
To ensure change and impact, our customers, cooperatives and farmers’ organisations, are in the driver’s seat. They build relationships with financers and buyers, organise successful lobbies or provide valuable services to their members in a sustainable way. To enable farmers' organisations and cooperatives to do this better, our training sessions provide them with practical instructions and experiences of colleagues from around the world.
