Total Consultancy: 200 person/months

AGRIN was involved in this project as a joint-venture partner with Lincoln Int. Ltd of New Zealand. Project objectives are to strengthen the research capabilities of agriculture, forestry, soil and water research institutes, through setting priority national research programs, including farmers research systems. Major consultancy inputs provided for institutional strengthening are; preparation of a research master plans, farming system research, livestock research, crops research, integrated pest management, forestry research, soil and water research, and MIS. AGRIN was also responsible for overall coordination of the consultancy activities (more than 200 staff month) of the project.
Under this project AGRIN played a key role for the establishment of the Agricultural Economic Research Institute (AERI), in 1996. After the establishment of AERI, AGRIN has regularly provided local experts to the institute on different economic issues.
Consultancy services and/or training provided by AGRIN experts for different “project implementing agencies” is given below with their major topics.
