    As part of the efforts of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to support and strengthen NARS’ research impacts and their links to extension service systems, the present assessment was conducted in Liberia to establish deeper insight into these challenges and opportunities. The results presented in this comprehensive report can be used to support the development and adoption of guidelines for use by the NARS. The present study was undertaken to assess the implementation of AR4D in Liberia and the key actors involved to better understand the performance and the intuitional linkages amongst them and other relevant institutions to help identify potentials for fulfilling the agricultural research for development needs of the country with the over-arching goal of supporting small-scale farmers.

    Side event of the FAO Science and Innovation Forum – Strengthening agricultural Research-Extension- Farmers Linkages: project experience in Liberia
    13/okt/22
    2022
    Also available in:

    The weak collaboration and institutional linkages among agricultural extension, research and farmers in Liberia are a major constraint for sustainable agricultural production intensification, food systems transformation, and innovation. An EC-funded project, implemented by FAO is strengthening those linkages by applying key innovations at policy, institutional and field levels. Collaborative mechanisms among pluralistic extension actors enhanced the efficiency of the service provision. The project's holistic and innovative approach was embedded in a solid capacity development effort. The side event will present the project's good practices and innovations and offer a strategic discussion about the sustainable transformation pathway of research and extension in Liberia to meet the SDG targets.

    Transforming agricultural research and extension systems
    Unlocking the potential of agricultural innovation to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals

    Agricultural research and extension systems are central to unlock the potential of agricultural innovation and achieve sustainable development goals. Public agricultural research, extension and advisory services are essential for increasing productivity and promoting sustainable agricultural growth and alleviating poverty. FAO supports its member countries by providing policy advice and technical assistance, sharing knowledge and developing institutional and technical capacities so that they can transform their agricultural research systems and extension and advisory services, thereby unlocking the full potential of agricultural innovation. This booklet contains a brief introduction to the subject and then provides the background to FAO’s support to its member countries in seven inter-related focus areas, including speci c highlights of FAO’s work: transforming agricultural research systems; transforming extension and advisory services; strengthening the agricultural innovation system; developing capacities for agricultural innovation; agricultural biotechnologies; providing a platform for knowledge exchange/sharing; and partnerships in agricultural research and extension and advisory services.
