Bridging the Gap between Market Access and Farmers


Last month, Nairobi, Kenya was the site of an international conference focused on the needs of small-scale, resource-poor farmers.

The Innovations in Extension and Advisory Service International Conference, held November 15 – 18, sought to brighten Africa’s agricultural future by promoting policy reforms that would expand access and funding to extension and advisory service providors for poor farmers, particularly women and those in marginalized rural communities.

From the viewpoint of the more than fifteen major NGOs and research organizations that organized the event (including IFAD, FARA, and FAO) these service providers could bridge the gap between farmers and markets by providing them with the information, thechnology, and resources they so desperately need.
