Last Mile Programme

Delivering Extension Services to the Last-Mile: Improving smallholders’ access to innovation and pluralistic, demand-driven extension services

Smallholder producers need more than just technical information related to production aspects. There is rarely a “one size fits all” solution to address the mix of technical, economic, commercial, social and environmental and climate change aspects that farming problems consist of. With the goal to accelerate farmers’ access to and utilisation of technologies and innovations, the IFAD-supported Last-Mile Program was designed and launched in 2019, to be implemented in two phases of three years each, plus a third phase of four years. AESA is a partner in this project.
