Farm forestry and livelihood development
Download Full Report -18.9Mb
The positive experience in implementing the Intensified Social Forestry
Project in Semi-Arid Areas in Kenya has resulted in the adoption of the
Farmer Field School (FFS) platform by Kenya and other countries for their
extension programmes as a management tool that can increase the
capacity and responsiveness of both the farmers and the institutions that
utilize the approach.
This FFS guide was developed for project designers and managers, as well
as field practitioners who intend to use the FFS platform for extension and
management support to farm forestry or forestry-based livelihood
development. In addition to a basic conceptual framework, the guide
provides the know-how for managing effective FFS extension activities,
and integration of the FAO RuralInvest toolkit and a mobile-phone based
monitoring system in the FFS platform.
