Abstract: Since 1998 SNV has supported extension service providers at the district and commune levels, and later at provincial level, to develop, test and implement a participatory agricultural extension methodology (PAEM). After the introduction of staff training packages and farmer-oriented technical training courses, extension workers are now better equipped to reach poor farmers in remote upland areas, and to provide new production methods to improve farm output. Farmers are also more responsive because the extension services now address their needs as specified in village development plans.
