TOPIC: Adapting Agricultural Extension to Peacebuilding

Adapting Agricultural Extension to Peacebuilding 3 years 7 months ago #1

Extension services can profoundly affect farmers and their practice of farming. Ideally, these services are widely disseminated and closely integrated into local communities. Such characteristics suggest that extension activities can contribute to peacebuilding in countries beset by conflict. To realize such impact would, however, require organizational modification and enhanced skill and technical capacity to help agents engage effectively in such peacebuilding activities.
