Extension and advisory services are powerful means to enable smallholder farmers in breaking the cycle of low productivity, vulnerability and poverty. By providing farmers with knowledge and tools about modern agricultural practices and linking them to new technology, finance and market solutions, extension can be a critical force for ending hunger, achieving gender equality and promoting decent work and economic growth. 

The Feed the Future's Developing Local Extension Capacity (DLEC) and Integrating Gender and Nutrition within Agricultural Extension Services (INGENAES) projects are hosting a two-day event to share and co-create innovative extension solutions that impact smallholder farmers at global scale.
