The 3rd Annual Meeting of the Global Forum for Rural Advisory Services (GFRAS) will take place on 26-28 September at The Heritage Hotel, Manila, the Philippines, hosted by the Asia-Pacific Islands Rural Advisory Services (APIRAS) Network. The meeting will contribute to thematic exchange on rural advisory services (RAS) and give participants the opportunity to discuss GFRAS strategic directions and functioning. Exchange and learning will take place in plenary and parallel sessions, group discussions, and a field trip (tentative date: 27 September).
SAI Platform supports the work of GFRAS as extension services are key to spreading good agricultural practices worldwide, especially in developing countries where so many former extension service resources have disappeared over the last decades. We are proud to report that GFRAS is an affiliate member of SAI Platform.
