9th GFRAS Annual Meeting 23 - 25 October 2018, Headquarter of the Rural Development Administration, Jeonju, Republic of Korea
with side events on 22 October 2018
Public sector, private sector, non-governmental organisations, producer organisations are all involved in RAS and contribute through various arrangements to the provision and financing of RAS, though to varying degrees according to context. Aside from these actors directly involved in RAS, there has been an increasing overlap between activities of RAS, education and training, as well as research, and individual consultants have started playing a significant role in responding to the demand for specific services.
For rural advisory services to be effective in facing current challenges need to increase coordination and collaboration between the different actors in order to use each actor’s comparative advantage to provide inclusive and demand-based services to their clientele.
Participants from all regions of the world working in RAS or in related fields are encouraged to register for the meeting, including representatives of farmer organisations, private companies, research and education institutions, development agencies, media and others.
