South Asia infocentre to discuss delivery of agricultural technologies

In November 2006, the SAARC Agricultural Information Centre (SAIC) is organizing a Regional Workshop on Research–Extension Linkages for Effective Delivery Of Agricultural Technologies in SAARC Countries.

To be held at the National Academy of Agricultural Research Management in India, the workshop objectives are: to study national policy processes providing facilitating framework and practices for establishing stronger agricultural research - extension linkages; to highlight the technical, economic and institutional conditions influencing development of collaborative linkages between research and extension systems; and to identify key weaknesses and ways of strengthening links to improve agricultural communication between research and extension organisations.

The SAARC Agricultural Information Centre (SAIC) was established by the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) in 1989 to promote access to agricultural information in the region (comprising Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka).
