International Development

NCBA CLUSA support of international communities began in 1945 when we participated in the founding of CARE (Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe) to aid in rebuilding war torn Europe. In 1953, NCBA CLUSA began working with Indian farmers to form a cooperative helping to revolutionize the nation’s fertilizer industry. Today, that cooperative, known as the Indian Farmers Fertilizer Cooperative Limited (IFFCO), is the largest member-owned fertilizer cooperative in the world. Since then, we have worked in over 85 countries implementing over 400 programs transforming rural communities, building democratic institutions, and providing technical assistance to group businesses, civil society organizations (CSOs), non-governmental organizations, local governments, farmer associations and cooperatives.

NCBA CLUSA’s international development work centers on building resilient communities, promoting economic opportunities and strengthening community groups through cooperative principles. Whether pioneering climate-smart agriculture techniques in Niger, connecting coffee co-ops in El Salvador to international buyers or training farmers to cultivate new high-value crops in East Timor, NCBA CLUSA believes that the core of sustainable development is providing people access to the skills and tools that empower them to articulate, promote and manage sustainable, locally generated solutions.
