The Agricultural Extension Policy Forum was held the 12th and 13th of May 2015 in Accra, Ghana at the Best Western Premier Accra Airport Hotel. The overarching purpose of the Forum was to promote policy dialogue and conduct a stakeholder review of Ghana’s existing agricultural extension policy and its implementation. Sixty-two people participated in the Forum with representatives from the public, private, and civil society sectors.
Several opening presentations set the dynamic tone of the Forum. This included a presentation on Liberia’s National Policy for Agricultural Extension and Advisory Services, a presentation which identified elements of effective extension policies, one which looked at policy from farmers’ perspectives, and one which informed participants about continental and Ghanaian agricultural extension apex organizations.
