Capacity gap assessment and development plan to strengthen the capacities on AEAS policy analysis, formulation and advocacy and, resource mobilization

The African Forum for Agricultural Advisory Services (AFAAS) is the continental umbrella
organization and platform that aims at strengthening national Agricultural Extension and Advisory
Services (AEAS) in Africa to contribute to sustained productivity, profitability and growth of African
agriculture for poverty reduction. AFAAS was established in 2004. Its Secretariat is in Kampala,
Uganda. AFAAS is aligned to the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP)
and to the Malabo declaration of June 2014. Its focus is on knowledge management and innovation
in the delivery of AEAS in the African food system. Currently AFAAS has members from 40 African
countries. Each member country is expected to establish a multi-stakeholder Country Forum (CF)
through which its activities are implemented. AFAAS is also working with Regional Forums to have
greater coordination and linkages among the countries.
