Activity 9) Provision made to allow postgraduate students from CAZS and DFBD to study modules at IAWM and undertake field work under the direction of IAWM staff
Postgraduate students from CAZS and DFBD will be invited to undertake field work for their MScs by participating in the surveys of stakeholders, or the testing of training extension materials. These activities will promote mutual understanding between staff and students from the three institutions. The project will cover international and local travel but they will be asked to pay towards their food and accommodation.
Extension products will consist primarily of videos, flip charts, posters and pamphlets though the project will also seek to use real time media such as TV and radio. The materials will be tested and revised as necessary with farmers and extension agents in Region 1 of the Philippines and at least one other project in another Asian country, probably India. Farmers will be involved in the appraisal of the products and invited to provide feedback for their improvement or alteration.
