Agriterra believes that people who live and work in rural areas can play a crucial role in solving the problems of hunger and poverty by organising themselves in strong en representative producers’ organisations. These organisations are indispensable for the promotion of democracy, a better distribution of income and the economic development of a country. They are necessary to make an important contribution to achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Agriterra supports them in reaching this goal by promoting, facilitating and supporting lasting cooperation linkages between rural people's organisations in the Netherlands and in developing countries. Agriterra cooperates with rural people's organisations in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Central and Eastern Europe.
