Reshaping rural extension: Learning for sustainability

About 40 per cent of the world’s population earn their livelihoods from agriculture, with the vast majority of these living in poverty on small-scale farms. Building on more than 30 years of successful work in extension and advisory systems, the authors of this book provide extension workers with guidance on how to offer small-scale farmers more effective support. Presented here through a selection of methods and tools, this innovative approach can also be applied in practice.

    Good book. Very easy to read and method very applicable in the field . Helps me organise higher farmers organisation, cassava enterprise development whereby two cassava farmers associations has been formed using some of the extesion approaches in the book.

    It helps me to be analytical in dialoguing and in the involvement of farmers in the planning of extension advisory activities and setting of extension themes

    It is very educative especially to students of Agricultural Extension. It was very useful during preparation of my MSC proposal.
