extnsion-methods-cover-pageThis document seeks to identify relevant extension methods in different situations for maximum impact, taking into consideration the diversity of needs by the whole spectrum of extension beneficiaries/ clients. It also enhances the work of extension service providers in imparting information and skills to the farming community.

From the findings of the study, individual farm visits are the most preferred Extension methods by farmers, reasons given by farmers for this is because of the opportunity offered by the methods, to ask questions and learn skills interactively on the farm. ICT as an extension methodology has a huge potential and should be emphasized by enhancing capacity of the extension officers and improving the requisite infrastructure.

A Guide for Identification and Mobilization of Community under-utilized Resources:

guide-for-community-resourcesThis is a guideline developed by National Agriculture and Livestock Extension programme (NALEP) to enhance the work of service providers in community development. Resources do not refer to money as understood by many,however, it also refers to physical and social assets at the community disposal. Other virtual entities like the beauty of a forest or a park can be an important resource to a given community. It is worth pointing out the most important resource in a given community is the people.

There is need to identify and mobilize the resources to achieve the community development agenda as level of development will be entirely determined by the magnitude of the resources identified and mobilized.

This guideline attempts to list various categories of resources and further highlights tools that can be used to identify these under-utilized resources.
