The Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) is a non-profit organization established by the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) in 1966.
The "new normal" conditions in Southeast Asia compels SEARCA and all of its key partners to initiate anew a paradigm shift towards accelerating transformation through agricultural innovation (ATTAIN).
SEARCA aligns its training programs with current thinking in capacity development in accelerating transformation through agricultural innovation. These training programs will facilitate the wide sharing of best practices, practical and useful technologies, effective mindsets, and successes and lessons learned among the different stakeholders of SEARCA and different agriculture and rural development systems. Moreover, these training programs are expected to bridge the gap between the different agricultural and rural development ecologies by addressing relevant and urgent needs, with focus on social, policy, technological, institutional, and conceptual innovations.
