The seventy-fourth session of ESCAP Commission, held in Thailand from 11 to 16 May 2018, adopted resolution 74/5 on Transition of the Centre for Alleviation of Poverty through Sustainable Agriculture (CAPSA) to an intergovernmental organization outside the United Nations system. This resolution fully endorsed the recommendation by the fourteenth session of the Governing Council of CAPSA. CAPSA therefore concluded its operation as a subsidiary body of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN ESCAP) as of 30 June 2018 after more than 30 years serving its member countries.
In this context, CAPSA website has become temporarily offline.
The Government of Indonesia is taking steps to establish a new organization to succeed CAPSA mandate and operation in due course. A new website will be open when the new organization has been established.
UN CAPSA team would like to extend its sincere appreciation to the users and visitors of the website.
