BOOK: Agricultural Extension: Global Status and Performance in Selected Countries

10 September 2020. BOOK LAUNCH Virtual Event - Agricultural Extension: Global Status and Performance in Selected Countries. Co-Organized by IFPRI and the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM).

Agricultural extension : global status and performance in selected countries / Kristin Davis, Suresh C. Babu, Catherine Ragasa, September 2020, 380 pages

This book provides a global overview of agricultural extension and advisory services, assesses and compares extension systems at the national and regional levels, examines the performance of extension approaches in a selected set of country cases (Brazil, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Malawi, and Uganda), and shares lessons and policy insights.

Drawing on both primary and secondary data, the book contributes to the literature on extension by applying a common and comprehensive framework — the “best-fit” approach — to assessments of extension systems, which allows for comparison across cases and geographies. Insights from the research support reforms — in governance, capacity, management, and advisory methods — to improve outcomes, enhance financial sustainability, and achieve greater scale.
