Project Objectives

Themain objective of the project was to provide farmers and livestock keepers with improved extension services in order to increase productivity and income. It was expected that during the first phase of the project , spanning eight years from 1989 to 1996 that a total of 7.6 million farmers of 2.8 million farm families living in 12 out of 20 regions in the mainland Tanzania, would be covered. In order to achieve the objective, both institutional capabilities of the extension services that were below their pre-1960 levels were to be strengthened. Physical facilities were to be rehabilitated and new construction of offices and residences for the field extension staff, particularly Divisional Extension Officers (DiVEOs) were to be carried out.
