Abstract:

This study proceeded from the premise that research and extension were related functions and examined the Bank's initiatives in this light. The study found that the Bank's support for research and extension, which is still evolving, has helped highlight the importance of strengthening these two functions. The selection of the ten member countries (Brazil, India, Kenya, Mali, Morocco, Nigeria, Sudan, Thailand and Turkey) ensures that each geographical region was represented in the sample; that major ecological zones were covered; that countries receiving substantial support from the Bank in their economic development and in strengthening research and extension were included; and that the various approaches the Bank followed in providing support for research and extension were represented. The Bank tried three approaches to help create better conditions for increasing productivity through agricultural research and extension. The first approach consisted of supporting research or extension components of agricultural and rural development projects. The second approach was similar to the first with the exception that the national research and extension organizations were partly or fully associated in implementing the component, but only rarely associated in designing it. And lastly, the third approach consisted of providing support to full-scale research and extension projects and to the national research and extension organization.
