​From aid to trade!

Smallholder farmers play an important role in ensuring global food security. Yet they often struggle to make a living, sometimes because they are not able to build or maintain effective relationships with support services, consumers and other buyers of their produce.

ICRA is constantly developing new ways of improving smallholder livelihoods and inclusive agribusiness, bringing smallholder farmers, entrepreneurs, and support services together to jointly improve their businesses.

With your commercial outlook, you are going to shape the future of this unique organization! It is your assignment to transform ICRA into a strong financially independent organization that can flourish in a rapidly changing and increasingly competitive market.

You feel comfortable with developing and implementing a successful business plan for ICRA: moving from an inward-looking towards an outside-looking model. You make sure ICRA has a viable income model with a clear focus on a commercial strategy.

The ICRA team is enthusiastic and open towards new insights. You understand staff with a passion for content and with your excellent communication skills you guide them how to be more business minded. You are an inspirational leader.

You know how to seek new opportunities for global business. As the face of the organization, you actively prospect for new clients and funds in the public and private sector, in the Global North and South. Regular travel is an integral part of your job.

Over the years ICRA has been very modest in portraying itself. You are going to make sure the world knows how important ICRA’s work is!

Building skills changing outlooks...

Stichting ICRA is a non-profit organization, founded in 1981, based in Wageningen (the Netherlands) and with additional representation in Montpellier (France), West and East Africa and Latin America. A small but steadily growing international organization, with a current total of 18 employees and an increasing network of associated professionals and alumni in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

ICRA’s goal is to help end poverty and hunger and to promote sustainable resource use. This cannot be realized by technology and money alone.

ICRA strengthens innovation capacity of the agribusiness/rural development sector by training trainers, facilitators and coaches, who can broker partnerships, build trust and facilitate effective relations between agribusiness partners and business support services.

In the Global North and South, ICRA works with government departments, research institutes, universities, development agencies, business support services, farmer organizations and the private sector, constantly developing new ways of improving smallholder livelihoods and inclusive agribusiness.

ICRA’s headquarter is in Wageningen in the Netherlands and the Executive Director reports to an international Supervisory Board.
