Field School Networks for East Africa
The last stage of Field Schools implementation is the scaling out stage. Most Field schools would initiate other Farmer-run Field schools or become an investment entity able to benefit from the private sector or other devolved funding.
The issue of Field Schools networks dates back to to 2006 during the implementation of the IFAD funded project on FFS in East Africa.
On the 24th February 2021, Mr. Daniel Baha gave a presentation ostensibly to re-ignite the debate on the need to have a formal FS network in East Africa. The thrust of this debate is the existing window under the various National investment projects implementing the Field schools approach.
