African Forum for Agricultural Advisory Services

Digital disruption opportunities in invigorating extension and advisory services​

There is growing evidence on how digital disruptions could transform agriculture service provision including extension. Digitally-enabled advisory services could significantly change its delivery in Africa, facilitating extensive and timely information delivery. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, digital platforms have taken a critical role in facilitating information, goods and service delivery. It is thus imperative that digitally-enabled extension and advisory services become the norm in future. Past efforts have seen youth and private actors successfully develop digitally-enabled services. This session will therefore feature successful youth and private sector led digital extension through an interactive panel discussion with experts and breakout sessions to facilitate reflections, interrogations and further discussions. As such, lessons will be drawn to consolidate opportunities for gainful uptake and scale-up.
