1a.Objectives (from AD-416):
Enhance rural livelihood by improving access to agricultural information.
1b.Approach (from AD-416):
Under the auspices of the Af-Pak Trilateral, a consortium of Land-Grant universities involving University of California (UC) Davis as lead along with Iowa State Universitay, Purdue University, Maryland University and Washington State University was formed to help strengthen the extension and delivery systems of Afghanistan and Pakistan to better meet the needs of farmers and the rural poor. In support of this, a series of in-region extension workshops is proposed to: (1) Strengthen technical skills in priority areas to provide a context for extension training, and (2) Provide an extension framework for subsequent implementation.
This agreement lapsed in FY 2011. Funding was provided to the University of California, Davis and is reported under 0210-22310-004-42G. This is the final report.
