The Association for International Agricultural and Extension Education (AIAEE) was established in 1984 to provide a professional association for agricultural and extension educators who share the common goal of strengthening agricultural and extension education programs and institutions worldwide.
The FFS approach has spread and is increasingly spreading successfully around the world. Implementing organisations increasingly receive requests from organisations to provide training, documentation, training materials, resource persons and trainers on the FFS approach for implementing FFS globally. In support of these requests the FFS Foundation has developed the Global FFS Network and Resource Centre (FFSnet) in close collaboration with FAO, CTA and other partners. With the global expansion, institutionalisation and scaling-up of the FFS approach, a need has risen to establish a decentralised network and resource centre to cater for strategies and mechanisms for institutionalisation and scaling-up, quality control mechanisms, low cost implementation strategies and mechanisms, a discussion forum, exchange of experiences, and quick access to resource and training materials, trainers, experts and documentation.

SAI Platform is an organisation created by the food industry to communicate and to actively support the development of sustainable agriculture involving stakeholders of the food chain.
Plantwise is an initative, led by CABI, to improve food security and the lives of the rural poor by reducing crop losses.
For every 1% reduction in crop losses, we can potentially help millions more people feed themselves. This can be done today – with no additional use of land, water, fertilizers or chemicals. Plantwise is reducing crop losses and improving lives by gathering, organising and disseminating vital knowledge about plant health.
With the right knowledge in the hands of smallholder farmers and the wider research community we can identify plant health problems earlier, provide treatment and best practice recommendations to combat pests and improve crop yields, and slow down the spread of plant pests and diseases around the world. Plantwise is gathering and disseminating knowledge in two ways: 1) via a network of plant clinics in the developing world to help the poorest farmers and 2) internationally via a knowledge bank.

It paths the way towards a climate resilient world with new leaders who care environment.
Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation is a USAID and Fintrac Inc. program focused on finding and commercializing agricultural technology that can help smallholder farmers. We're working to build public-private partnerships that move agricultural technologies from labs to markets to farms.
The 21st bi-annual European Seminar on Extension Education (ESEE) in Antalya, Turkey, is successfully completed. Around 50 papers were presented from just under 20 different countries from 4 continents.Â
At present more than 50 percent of the world’s population is living in urban areas and it is expected to rise to 70 percent by 2050. This causes an enormous challenge to conventional food production and supply. Food and nutrition security of poor urban populations is and remains at risk as a consequence of the volatility and rapid increases in food prices, natural disasters and climate change effects. This calls for global action.
Building resilient food systems for the future by integrating rural and urban areas and strengthening their linkages – with the involvement of all stakeholders – will benefit both smallholder farmers and the urban poor.
AO and the RUAF Foundation are partnering to build sustainable, resilient and dynamic city region food systems, by strengthening rural-urban linkages.
The programme provides assistance to local governments in identifying and understanding gaps, bottlenecks and opportunities for sustainable planning, informed decision-making, prioritizing investments, designing sustainable food policies and strategies to improve local food systems.
The Feed the Future Developing Local Extension Capacity (DLEC) project measurably improves extension programs, policies and services by creating locally-tailored, partnership-based solutions and by mobilizing active communities of practice to advocate for scaling proven approaches. Led by Digital Green in partnership with Care International, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the Global Forum for Rural Advisory Services (GFRAS), DLEC is an action-oriented, evidence-based learning project.
Urbanization will shape the 21st century: by 2050, two-thirds of humanity are projected to live in cities. It poses unprecedented challenges for food security and access to sufficient nutritious, safe and sustainable food to both rural and urban populations. Nourishing a growing and urbanizing world population is crucial to ending hunger and malnutrition, and eradicating poverty. The New Urban Agenda (NUA) adopted in 2016 stressed food security and nutrition as a critical sustainability challenges for urban and peri-urban areas, and emphasized strong rural urban linkages as a necessity to overcome this challenge. The Milan Urban Food Policy Pact gathers cities committed to the fight against food security and nutrition. Its framework of action serve as a reference for this platform. Growing evidence shows that strengthening urban rural linkages —physical, economic, social, and political— is crucial for ending food insecurity and malnutrition. Strong linkages between agricultural producers, particularly smallholders, and urban consumers can foster sustainable development and improve food security and nutrition for both rural and urban areas
