AFAAS- Stories from 10 Country Forums – Year 2020

The Country Fora (CFs) are building blocks of AFAAS and bring together a wide range of actors and stakeholders involved in or benefitting from agricultural extension and advisory services (AEAS) in a country. They provide mechanisms for the diverse actors – including farmers – to exchange information, share lessons, identify opportunities for providing services  to each other, and for innovating for effective services. It was anticipated that the CFs will evolve into providing leadership to the overall development of effective AEAS in particular countries and serve as springboard for innovations and entry points for regional and international initiatives in improving AEAS and rural livelihood in general.
