This workshop held in Kampala, Uganda from 29th to 30th 2014 under the theme : “Uganda’s Agriculture at Crossroads: Critical issues in the Extension and Advisory Services (AEAS) System”. The main purpose of the workshop was to bring together a broad range of actors to take stock of the current critical issues affecting Agricultural Extension and Advisory Services (AEAS) in Uganda. UFAAS needs to continuously advocate for the value and relevance of AEAS and also continuously build the capacity of its members to be up to date with the emerging issues and approaches.

It is also imperative that UFAAS initiates the process of setting standards for the extension and advisory services in Uganda and advocates for their adoption by MAAIF which has the mandate for this function.
