Double benefits for youth and private actor participation in scaling up successful extension approaches and scale up: Opportunities and challenges

Different extension approaches have been developed and tested.  Among these approaches include farmer field schools (FFS) and Smallholder Horticulture Empowerment and Production (SHEP) approach. Their success is largely pegged on among other factors, such as how they have assimilated youth and private actors as agents and participants or beneficiaries. Their integration is critical in scaling up these approaches. This webinar will explore the double benefit for youth and private actors’ involvement in FFS and SHEP as well as challenges that may hinder successful integration with the aim of aligning these approaches to realize wider-scale impact in agriculture development.
