About this Event
The Feed the Future Developing Local Extension Capacity (DLEC) Annual Community of Practice Convening brings together agricultural extension and advisory services stakeholders from around the world to share, learn, and network. The theme for this year’s Annual Community of Practice Convening is: Future Extension Capacities.

This free event is open to anyone who works in or is interested in agricultural extension and advisory services, including government staff, academics, researchers, development practitioners, extension agents, farmer group representatives, and others.

The Convening will be an opportunity for these diverse stakeholders to share their experience around issues of extension capacities. The Convening will include keynote speakers, breakout sessions, workshops, and networking opportunities via small groups and with all participants.

About DLEC

The Feed the Future Developing Local Extension Capacity (DLEC) project galvanizes diverse EAS stakeholders to measurably improve agricultural extension programs, policies and services. DLEC accomplishes this objective through three interrelated sets of activities: (i) Country Diagnostics to make recommendations and inform strategies, (ii) Action Research Engagements to test interventions and build an evidence base, and (iii) Communities of Practice to share and advocate for proven best-fit practices in extension. DLEC (2016-2021) is led by Digital Green in partnership with organizations such as the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the Global Forum for Rural Advisory Services (GFRAS).
