Who we are

The CATIE National Technical Office (NTO) in El Salvador was founded in 1977 under the Division of Outreach and Development. Although this NTO has been operating for 36 years, El Salvador didn’t become a CATIE member country until October 16, 1986.

Since 1977, we have had an impact on the fields of agriculture, forestry, the environment and livestock, developing many projects that have left their mark on the country. Our most significant role has been the training of human resources through the Graduate School and training processes for professionals, leaders and producer partners in our projects.
