This publication is for extension personnel, trainers, policy-makers who would like to refresh their knowledge of the concept of extension. This publication introduces the framework for determining the need for extension reform and also guidelines for modernizing national extension systems. Extension is a function of providing need- and demand-based knowledge and skills to rural men, women and youth in a non-formal, participatory manner, with the objective of improving their quality of life. Since most of the target population is adult, extension commonly applies the principles of adult education to educational approaches and materials to enhance learning. Extension is essentially education, although it falls outside formal education systems, and as such, aims at bringing about positive behavioural changes among those targeted.
