Review of extension systems in Ethiopia- East shewa, West Shewa and East Wollega zones

Abstract: 

As part of the baseline survey for the ACIAR- funded Trees for Food Security Project, a literature review and key informants’ interviews were undertaken in Ethiopia to understand the status of the extension system. The major areas of focus were: Extension technologies disseminated to farmers; Community engagement; Capacity and efficiency; Linkage with other institutions; Commercialization and marketing and local innovation. Findings from the studies contributed to improved understanding of what extension approaches work best in different contexts encapsulated in tools for customizing scaling up methods to local farming conditions.
