Vol. 074: Lemma, Mamusha: The Agricultural Knowledge System in Tigray, Ethiopia

Recent History and Actual Effectiveness

The Agricultural Knowledge System (AKS) in Ethiopia is undergoing a significant transformation process as the demands and challenges facing it grow. In this book, the author analyses the history, current status and future direction of the AKS in Ethiopia with a particular reference to the Tigray region, focusing on the overall setting, the linkages between the different actors, and its recent developments. Taking the extension service as a core component of the system, the book analyzes interrelationships between local and formal knowledge systems; identifies institutional, organizational and human capacity constraints facing the system; and assesses the potential of recent policy reforms and institutional developments to improve the effectiveness of the system. The book reflects the specific context in which the system operates, clarifies the extent to which it is institutionally pluralistic and coordinated, assesses its overall strengths and weaknesses, and offers policy recommendations for reorienting it, enabling it to effectively respond to the varied and changing conditions in the country, as well as to the developments and challenges shaping extension globally.
