07:00 am > 09:30 am
The objective of this dialogue is to come to a common understanding of how extension can contribute to the SDGs and adapt to future needs.
During this dialogue, questions including what capacities are needed, how is extension performing in these areas, how can it do better and what should countries, funders, managers, implementers do will be answered.
It will include the viewpoints of what the SAA and IFPRI are learning as implementers and researchers respectively, in agricultural extension, with a focus on the future and the SDGs. They will highlight the ongoing IFPRI-Japan collaboration, as well as prepare for a summit side event in New York, by bringing recommendations from the dialogue to New York for action.
