    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    This review paper presents an overview of changes in agricultural extension on a global scale and helps to characterise on-going developments in extension practice. Through a critique and synthesis of literature the paper focuses on global political changes which have led to widespread changes from production- to market oriented extension systems and goes on to discuss pressures on unsustainable public extension systems to reform.
