“CIAT,” which means seed (씨앗) in Korean, represents the idea which CIAT stands for. A seed is small, but it can grow into a large tree. KOICA has launched its new brand name, Capacity Improvement and Advancement for Tomorrow (CIAT), with hopes of contributing to the socio-economic development of its partner countries.

Korea recognizes crucial roles that human resources can play in the process of national development through its experience. This is why KOICA is providing targeted training programs to partner countries for the cultivation of quality human resources. By partnering with domestic public agencies, think tanks and universities, KOICA is committed to providing high quality education and training programs to participants. In addition, as the messenger of Korea’s warm heart, the alumni of the CIAT delivers the message of hope to people and makes actual contributions to the development of their country.
