3rd AFAAS AFRICA-WIDE AGRICULTURAL EXTENSION WEEK
51st ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN SOCIETY FOR AGRICULTURAL EXTENSION

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
AFAAS and SASAE together with DAFF will be holding a joint conference on the theme of “Scaling up climate smart agriculture (CSA): integrating youth, women, and the digital revolution”. The theme was selected in recognition of the fact that climate change is having grave impacts on resourcepoor African farmers and increasingly contributing to food losses along the whole value chain. According to the World Bank Group, FAO and IFAD (2015), CSA is an approach that can help to guide actions needed to transform and reorient agricultural systems to effectively support development and ensure food security in a changing climate. Hence agricultural extension and advisory services (AEAS) should reorient and re-equip themselves to provide farmers and other actors in agricultural innovation systems with the knowledge and technologies they need to identify agricultural strategies and practices suitable to their local conditions.
