Information & Communication

We have expertise in global communication, events, editorial, media and technical support production. In this way, we design, shape and disseminate news, knowledge and know-how. Each activity is adapted to COLEACP’s target groups, including beneficiaries from the private or public sector, members of the association, development practitioners, partners and employees.

We defend the interests of the ACP agri-food sectors on the national and international scenes, ensuring regular relations with business and government officials, political decision-makers and donors. COLEACP advises international platforms involved in trade and sustainable development of ACP agriculture, ensuring that their specificities and needs are taken into account.

Business & Development

We seek and identify business developments for members and beneficiaries, in particular through participation in trade fairs and forums, and targeted market monitoring in the fruit and vegetable sector. We advise companies to improve their competitiveness and access financing. In a context of the growth of digital communication networks in ACP countries and our constant quest to reduce our use of paper and post, we have developed e-platforms for the digital sharing of knowledge, accessible via COLEACP’s e-services website.
