Linking Researchers with Farmers in South India and Sri Lanka

Picture 7Lifelong Learning for Farmers (L3), an initiative by the Commonwealth of Learning, an NGO, operates in South India and Sri Lanka in partnership with local banks, ICT providers and farmers groups.

It aims to improve the flow of information from researchers to farmers by offering tips, advice and information on best practices to local farmers through internet based kiosks.

Farmers form a local association and identify their needs and objectives and L3 helps bring them the relevant information to help them achieve these objectives. Information is provided by national or regional institutions such as universities.
