Technical cooperation is a development tool of the Brazilian Government and represents an important operational category of external policy. Through technical cooperation, Brazil supports institutional strengthening, capacity-building and technology transfer activities with developing countries.

At the federal government level, Embrapa performs agricultural technical cooperation activities in partnership with the Brazilian Cooperation Agency (ABC), an agency of the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE) that is responsible for negotiating, coordinating, implementing, and monitoring Brazilian cooperation with international partners.

Embrapa's technical cooperation is coordinated by General Management of Cooperation in RD&I under the Director of Research and Innovation. Contact:
