  • Harmonise activities within policy making for extension and advisory services
  • Link demands to resources within policy activities
  • Make information and resources publicly available on the relevant web sites

Demands for a RAS Policy Guide - Questionnaire September 2013 

A policy can be defined as a regulatory framework to guide decisions and achieve out-comes. The  GFRAS working group on policy together with the Modernizing Extension and Advisory Services (MEAS) developed the idea to elaborate a guide for extension policy and a survey was conducted in September and October 2013 to identify the demand for such a document.

Policy Compendium

RAS Policy Compendium

intro compendiumThe Policy Compendium is a tool that contributes to filling the gap between the rural advisory services (RAS) policy environment and RAS efforts in the field. It helps direct decisions and facilitate successful policy processes and outcomes in extension and advisory services by making knowledge accessible, fostering synergies and promoting policy processes to improve RAS and rural development.

It has two purposes. 

  1. It provides easily accessible and understandable resources for those developing, implementing, monitoring, evaluating or advocating for RAS policy. The Compendium provides background information, inputs, ideas and hands-on guidance for decision-making and facilitation of successful policy processes for RAS. 
  2. The Compendium is also closely linked to GFRAS’ efforts with regards to the Consortium on Extension Education and Training and to policy dialogues at regional and national level: While the Policy Compendium provides background and learning materials to support advocacy trainings and policy dialogues, results from trainings and policy dialogues will feed back into the Policy Compendium, enriching it with up-to-date data for practitioners using it.

The Policy Compendium is dynamic and is continuously expanded. For more information on it's structure and history, visit the sub-category "About".
