some definitions for a discussion of extension
Some Definitions for a Discussion of Extension
  • Public extension. Centralized, deconcentrated, devolved, or delegated.
  • Private extension (strict definition)
  • NGOs (need to distinguish various types)
  • Farmer organizations (ditto)
  • Farmer-to-farmer (strict definition)
an approach to the discussion
An Approach to the Discussion

The role of institutions

Useful to distinguish three themes:

  • The organization of the extension provider
  • The techniques and methods used for extension
  • The organization of the extension users
1 the organization of the providers
1. The Organization of the Providers
  • Incentives. Accountability and evaluation
  • Scale. How to move beyond small projects; the role of government; “scaling up”
  • Multiple extension sources. The appropriate mix; can you have too many?
  • Links to research
2 methods and techniques
2. Methods and Techniques
  • Nuts and bolts. Experience of this workshop
  • Need to ask which methods for which types of extension provision, and for what types of recipients
  • How to evaluate these methods and learn from experience
3 the organization of the recipients
3. The Organization of the Recipients

Not (necessarily) about formal farmer organizations. Rather issues such as:

  • How to establish demand-led systems; empowerment, choice
  • Feedback and iteration. (If extension is like a conversation)
  • Modalities in rural organization that can accommodate small, ephemeral groups and projects
  • Clearinghouses for information from different sources
