Improving Smallholders' Access to Innovation and Pluralistic, Demand-driven Extension Services
The overall goal of the programme is to contribute to the achievement of improved incomes, sustained market linkages and the reduction of climate vulnerability for smallholder farmers (with a major focus on women and youth) in developing countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean.
The target group will consist of public extension service providers (ministries of agriculture and research and relevant policy and regulatory bodies), private service providers (private individual extension agents, knowledge firms, input suppliers, producers, buyers, apex farmers’ organizations, traders, brokers, transporters, etc.) and semi-private providers (socio-entrepreneurs, NGOs, etc.) who offer agriculture-related services.
