The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), through its Mission in Guinea, is accompanying the reform of agricultural extension and advisory services (EAS) in Guinea. This support initially focuses on strengthening the pluralism and effectiveness of EAS providers as a lever to facilitate inclusive access to quality agricultural advisory services for producers and other value chain actors.
To this end, USAID has commissioned a study on strategies for strengthening partnerships and professionalising agricultural advisory services. This study was carried out by the Development of Local Agricultural Advisory Capacity (DLEC) project with the active participation of local stakeholders. Its results and recommendations were presented and validated during a national workshop of actors and stakeholders on Monday 24th August 2020, from 10am to 12pm via webinar on the Zoom platform. The agenda of the event is available here, the summary of of outcomes of the study can be downloaded here.
