    Comprehensive assessment of national agricultural research and extension systems with a special focus on agricultural research for development in Egypt
    Analysis and guidelines - Egypt case study

    This case study was conducted to provide a good understanding of the challenges and opportunities related to Egypt’s agricultural research and organizational development to draw lessons and develop supporting guidelines. This study aimed to enhance efforts exerted by Egypt’s NARS in the field of developmental research by formulating an integrated and coherent approach for research and dissemination of proven technologies and practices. Such approaches are expected to address key bottlenecks and provide the needed direction and means for sustainable improved implementation of AR4D. This can ultimately lead to enhancing and empowering the capacity of Egypt’s NARS to better inform and influence policies and facilitate institutional changes required in the agricultural sector. As part of the efforts of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to support and strengthen NARS’ research impact and their links to extension service systems, the present assessment was carried out to establish a deeper insight into challenges and opportunities that are facing NARS in Egypt.

    Enhancing linkages between extension, research and producers through innovations 2020

    Closing agricultural production gaps between smallholder producers’ actuals and the potential created by scientific research results and advancements is a vital if we are to address global challenges such as food insecurity, environmental degradation and climate changes. The gap is particularly large in developing countries where smallholder farming dominates the agricultural sectors. One of the many factors and constraints is the fact that researchers in universities and research institutions have no incentive or motivation to serve rural producers. This is due either to the systematic separation of research, extension and actual farming systems in most developing countries, or a lack of awareness about the importance of integrating these fields. The linkages must therefore be strengthened by innovative approaches that enable smallholders to achieve economic, environmental and social gains sustainably from agricultural science and technology research advancements.To achieve greater coherency and complementarity of mission, goals and activities should promote regular and constructive exchange and collaboration between research, extension and producers.
