The Ministry of Agriculture of Buthan presents its revised RNR extension policy of 2009. It outlines what is the role of extension and how it must function henceforth in terms of bringing about necessary positive changes and sustainable development in agriculture. The revised RNR extension policy is kept broad enough to cover all essential features/aspects and kept short enough to be more user-friendly, practical and realistic. It will facilitate extension system to develop and grow in a comprehensive and holistic manner. It will provide the necessary framework to stimulate learning and growth among farming communities. It will act as a deliberate means to build a firm foundation for alleviating poverty and translating GNH concept into concrete actions at the grassroots institution and community level.

Le Livre Blanc doit être la référence pour la conception et la mise en œuvre des projets et des programmes de développement agricole et rural, les principes qu’il contient devant désormais leur être appliqués tant par les Services de l’Etat que par les Partenaires dans la négociation de ces projets et programmes.Ce Livre Blanc constitue une plate forme nationale consensuelle qui doit désormais servir de socle stratégique et méthodologique pour l’élaboration de la politique nationale en matière de conseil aux producteurs, et notamment pour l’opérationnalisation du Plan d’Action Conseil Agricole en vue de la définition des programmes et budgets à moyen et long terme dans ce domaine.

For the agriculture sub-sector, the constraints/challenges (organized marketing, low yields in small-scale agriculture, lack of drainage/irrigation, limited research/development, outdated farming practices/equipment, inadequate packaging & grades/standards, limited Government land available for agriculture & land tenure insecurity) facing the sector is determining the policies. Therefore, the [policy] focus will be on: accelerating the diversification of both local/export-oriented agriculture, promoting agro-processing and value adding as a means of expanding opportunities and increasing the income of the rural sector, actively promoting market/trade expansion both locally and internationally, increasing the efficiency, profitability and competitiveness of the sector, and improving and conserving the natural/productive resource base to ensure long-term sustainable productivity/ viability.

Agricultural extension is a key component of the strategies and objectives of the Government's agricultural policy. As part of the Government.s responsibility for the establishment of policies, regulations and projects that will ensure sustained agricultural production, the need for developing a New Agricultural Extension Policy was felt.

This paper explores the process of developing an agricultural extension policy in Bangladesh and describes the content of the final policy statement, as an example of the approach taken in one country to developing a facilitative environment for sustainable agricultural development.

Agricultural extension is moving away from externally imposed change programmes towards bottom-up planning, farmer participation and empowerment and catalysis of sustainable change, based on local needs and problems. However, many of these changes have been on a relatively small scale, in policy or institutional environments generally favouring a more traditional approach to agricultural development. For a broader process of sustainable agricultural development to occur, changes in the policy and institutional environment are required.

Rural research, development and extension (RD&E) has been a significant contributor to making Australia’s agriculture, fisheries and forestry industries into what they are today—world-leading, productive and innovative industries.

The Australian rural sector includes a diverse range of industries, which largely comprise small family businesses. The incentive and capacity for individual small businesses to invest in RD&E is low, resulting in potential under-investment in RD&E in the rural sector. The government helps rural industries overcome this by providing rural producers with a means of investing collectively in RD&E to benefit their industry and wider community. This is done through the rural Research and Development Corporations (RDCs)—a partnership between government and industry in priority setting and funding.

This book, and indeed the wider extension network in Australia, is replete with examples and models of various extension approaches that are employed by intervening agencies seeking to enable desired change(s) in sustainable production and/or natural resource management. Chapter 1 paints a picture of extension as a policy instrument, or a method or mechanism used by government and government agencies as well as other institutions including business to achieve a desired effect (also see Vanclay and Leach 2006)1. This chapter provides a perspective on extension policy in Australia, a framework in which a national extension policy platform can rest and a process model for negotiation of effective extension policy as an effective instrument for enabling change.
