Last Day: What Role Can Agricultural Extension and Advisory Services Play in Realizing Gender Equality and Improved Nutrition?
Agricultural extension and advisory services play a crucial role in development and are central to realizing the potential of agricultural innovation. In the context of a shift to a more demand-led and participatory approach, agricultural extension and advisory services can also have an important impact on broader development objectives, such as improved nutrition and increased gender equality.
