TAA is an association of over 600 members, operated according to our Constitution. The TAA is a UK registered charity (No 800863). We are governed by an executive committee that is elected at the annual general meeting held in November/ December each year.

To advance education, research and practice in agriculture* for development

– The Association’s primary objectives are to:

  • Contribute to international policies aimed at reducing poverty and improving livelihoods in rural areas in the tropics, sub-tropics and countries with less developed economies in temperate areas.
  • Encourage efficient and sustainable use of local resources and technologies, to arrest and reverse the degradation of the natural resources base on which agriculture depends, and to raise productivity of both agriculture and related enterprises to increase family incomes and commercial investment in the rural sector.
