image of Fostering Green Growth in Agriculture

Knowledge investment supporting the adoption of environmentally friendly farm practices is a key driver behind innovation processes in agriculture, yet impact evaluations and financial assessments of existing initiatives remain scarce despite dramatic changes in orientation, organisation and intervention. This report examines the role, performance and impact of farm advisory services, training and extension initiatives in the OECD area to foster green growth in agriculture. Based on a series of case studies, the report discusses a range of methodological issues and the merits of the different types of providers, and identifies best practices in sustainable agricultural management.

Foreword

Investing in knowledge to support the adoption of environmentally-friendly farm practices is commonly perceived as a key driver behind innovation processes in agriculture. Yet changes at the national and global levels have led to dramatic changes in the orientation of advisory services, how these are organised, and their methods of intervention. This report examines the role, performance and impact of farm advisory services, as well as the training and extension initiatives undertaken in the OECD area to foster green growth in agriculture. The merits of the different types of providers are also discussed and the experience of selected OECD countries presented.
