Start Date: Mar 01, 2011
End Date: Dec 31, 2013
Strengthen the extension and delivery systems of Afghanistan and Pakistan to better meet the needs of farmers and the rural poor.
Under the auspices of the Food and Agriculture Working Group (“Working Group”) of the United States-Afghanistan-Pakistan Trilateral Initiative (“Trilateral”), UC Davis and a consortium of other universities will develop, organize, and conduct three workshops covering varying aspects of an effective agriculture extension training system and delivery mechanisms for information to farmers in both Afghanistan and Pakistan. As a result, the ministries of agriculture and provincial governments in Afghanistan and Pakistan will have a system and a group of trained extension technicians to train additional technicians and develop agricultural extension programs throughout their respective countries.
