This summary report provides an outline of the main issues, developments and trends in agricultural extension, as they relate to ICTs, with a special emphasis on improving rural livelihoods. The report draws on the presentations, case studies and discussions from the CTA Observatory. In doing so, it highlights the potential for, and constraints to, using ICTs for agricultural communication and information exchange, and identifies implications of these issues for CTA.
