A major development challenge in Africa is the mode of delivery, and financing of agricultural extension and advisory services to smallholder farmers. Rural extension and advisory services are essential in improving the incomes of rural peoples.There is currently a large debate on what model of extension is most effective for achieving the various national goals of different countries. This publication analyzes the potential opportunities and challenges for innovative participatory and demand-led extension service models in increasing small scale farmer's incomes.Critical factors that have led to the success of the COMPACI program in increasing small holder farmers' incomes have been through the recognition of the public, private and civil society sectors in contributing to extension and advisory services. The roles and responsibilities of the different stakeholders in the partnership need to be clearly defined and understood. In considering how best to design and implement different extension models, it is necessary to consider the socio-political, economic, and agro-ecological circumstances in different countries and sectors.
Due to the inefficient, poor performance and lack of manpower of public sector, public-private-partnership of veterinary services is finding acceptance in most developing countries. In this backdrop, Government of West Bengal introduced educated unemployed as Pranibandhu for Artificial Insemination and other animal husbandry activities round the clock against nominal fees. To appraise the performance and job satisfaction of Pranibandhus, the study was undertaken in the purposively selected district of Purba Medinipur, West Bengal. More than 60 percent of Pranibandhus were medium performer where as 61 percent were satisfied with their job. Animal breeding and animal health care were the preferred area of performance. Education, experience, cattle population in the area and commutation in the organisation were the significant contributor to the performance. Whereas, availability of resources, number of dependent, behavior of the superior and knowledge about reward & punishment were the main contributors to the job satisfaction. Pranibandhus perceived that responsibility & advancement of pay for the job and attitude of work itself were main factors affecting their job satisfaction.
The public-private partnership (PPP) concept was developed into an extension model to bridge the gap between demand and supply of extension services in view of fulfill the extension needs of the tea small holdings sector. In order to achieve a greater interaction among key stakeholders and their proactive participation in planning, implementation and monitoring of the partnership programs, cooperation between staff of partners, support from community leadership, mutual respect, appreciation of the contribution of partners, and effective communication are of paramount importance in developing an effective partnerships extension system. The PPP extension model developed in this study is proven as effective. However, so far this model is practiced by only a handful of stakeholders and locations. Hence it is recommended that the organizations responsible develop management and fiscal procedures to adopt this model and make sure all smallholders are served through such models.
