In many countries of the world agricultural extension services are shifting from the public to the private sector. Services are thus being contracted out, to improve the financing and delivery of agricultural knowledge.The book presents a range of case studies from Australia, Bangladesh, Chile, China, Germany, Mozambique, USA and others, that are presented to demonstrate the range of approaches. Topics covered include off-loading public sector extension delivery services, contracting to improve environmental services and farmers contracting for commercial advisory services.This volume presents work developed by the Agricultural Knowledge and Information Systems (AKIS) Thematic Group of the World Bank, in collaboration with the University of Maryland, to examine contracting for extension services.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Given that decentralization and privatization of extension is a global trend, the book has wide relevance. Its readability and emphasis on practice and implementation should further broaden its appeal. For those with an interest in agricultural information delivery networks and the transformation of agricultural extension is recommended reading."--The Australian Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics
"A striking feature of this book is the wealth of information the two editors have been able to put together, information which would otherwise be extremely difficult or tedious to obtain."--Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture
