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).

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, 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.
