The Centre for Alleviation of Poverty through Sustainable Agriculture [CAPSA] is a subsidiary body of the Economic and Social Commission for the Asia (ESCAP) based in Bogor, Indonesia.
On 11 May 2012, Dr Katinka Weinberger Director of CAPSA presented a letter informing the Ambassador of his confirmation as Fiji Government Representative to serve the Governing Council of CAPSA.
The countries represented in the council include Thailand, Malaysia, Iran, Pakistan, Korea, Sri Lanka and Indonesia.
