GIZ SNRD Africa newsletter highlights Access Agriculture’s innovative delivery model
An article titled ‘Innovating digital extension delivery services in rural Egypt,’ featured in the latest issue of the GIZ Sector Network Rural Development (SNRD) Africa newsletter, showcases a partnership project that successfully supports the co-construction of knowledge and inclusive growth for marginalised farmers through farmer-to-farmer videos and last-mile delivery in rural Egypt.
The project ‘Innovative Agriculture for Smallholder Resilience’ (iNASHR), which seeks to facilitate technology dissemination in rural Egypt, is jointly implemented by the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA), Access Agriculture and local partners. It is funded by BMZ and administered by GIZ-FIA, the Fund for International Agricultural Research.
The article https://www.snrd-africa.net/extension-delivery-services-in-rural-egypt/ is co-authored by Bezaiet Dessalegn, iNASHR Project Manager, ICARDA, and Laura Tabet, iNASHR Project Coordinator, Access Agriculture.
The authors conclude that digital extension delivery services can be a powerful way to accelerate agricultural transformation and that the international development cooperation should support such innovation to drive positive change in agricultural communities worldwide.
