The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) strongly pursue poverty and food security goals. One of its indicators calls for increased investment, including investments for agricultural research and extension services, etc. This paper is based on a model developed by the authors to calculate the investment requirements for agricultural and rural extension and advisory services (EAS) based on macro-economic data of developing countries. The model reveals significant differences in average investment requirements in different regions and shows the additional EAS costs related to climate change and other areas that currently lack investment.
