What is the Policy Compendium?

The Policy Compendium is a tool that contributes to fill the gap between the RAS policy environment and RAS efforts in the field. It  helps direct decisions and facilitate successful policy processes and outcomes in extension and advisory services by making knowledge accessible, fostering synergies, and promoting policy processes to improve RAS and rural development.


It has two purposes.

  1. It provides easily accessible and understandable resources for those those developing, implementing, monitoring, evaluating, or advocating for extension policy. The Compendium provides background information, inputs, ideas, and hands-on guidance for decision-making and facilitation of successful policy processes for RAS.
  2. The Compendium is also closely linked to GFRAS’ efforts with regards to the Consortium on Extension Education and Training on Extension Education and Training as well as to policy dialogues at regional and national level: While the Policy Compendium provides background and learning materials to support advocacy trainings and policy dialogues, results from trainings and policy dialogues will feed back into the Policy Compendium, enriching it with up-to-date data for practitioners using it.

The Policy Compendium is dynamic and is continuously expanded.
