OUR TEAM

COLEACP’S TEAM

All COLEACP staff, national relays and administrators manage and develop activities within their own field based on the association’s values. Together we strive to maintain a culture that aims to achieve results for the public good. Individually we seek meaning in what we do, and find it by contributing to building a world that we hope will be more sustainable. We aim to also apply our recommendations to ourselves through capacity building with companies and organisations that are committed to sustainable agriculture and agribusiness.
