Pluralism and the extension agent: changing concepts and approaches in rural extension


, : Pluralism and the extension agent: changing concepts and approaches in rural extension. Pluralism and the extension agent: changing concepts and approaches in rural extension: 63 pp.

This study analyses extension experience from three central perspectives: (1) the view from the field: how changing objectives and methods have been absorbed and adapted by the extension agents themselves; (2) costs, capacities and institutional sustainability: how realistic different extension alternatives are given the crises in local government; and (3) equity: how new approaches may overcome the elite, high-external-input and gender biases which have affected extension.
