This document is a complete transliteration into a policy brief form of the policy study funded and conducted by the Agricultural Training Institute and Dr. Romeo Clemente of Isabela State University, respectively.
The EHRDP is intended for scholarships and trainings for the purpose of developing technical, scientific, professionals, and academic workers to meet the challenges and requirements of a modernized agriculture and fisheries sector in the Philippines.
The Agricultural Training Institute, the apex organization for a harmonized agriculture and fisheries extension (AFE) system, is leading the way in the development of the AFE Results-Based Monitoring and Evaluation (RBME) system that ensures the relevance and alignment of extension interventions to the goals of the agriculture and fisheries sector of the country.
This Agricultural and Fisheries Extension Grant System Manual was formulated to enable the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) to effectively administer the grant system and to ensure transparency.
This document presents a more comprehensive costing of AFE products and services as it involved inputs from a wider group of multi-stakeholders throughout the country. Moreover, this document serves as a platform to harmonize AFE costing despite its pluralistic nature.
Extension services continue to evolve. With the challenges that extension workers and farmers face, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) continues to explore various strategies to improve its efforts as the extension and training arm of the Department of Agriculture. In over 30 years, the ATI has celebrated various successes and learned from the lessons during hard times. Nonetheless, we are proud to be standing the test of time through the support of our partners and the clientele themselves. This is the ATI Today, more committed to bring you extension services beyond boundaries.
