The African Forum for Agricultural Advisory Services (AFAAS) vision (AFAAS 2011) is for agricultural advisory services that effectively and efficiently contribute to sustained productivity and growth of African agriculture. Its mission is to promote lesson learning and add value to initiatives in agricultural advisory services through sharing of information and increased professional interaction. Information and knowledge sharing is emphasised within the AFAAS Strategic Framework (ibid.) where a specific objective is to ensure availability and accessibility of knowledge on agricultural advisory services (AAS) in Africa and worldwide. The centrality of knowledge sharing and learning as a platform for technical change makes the implementation of a knowledge management strategy essential for AFAAS.
