THE WAY FORWARD │ Level Up Philippine Agriculture!

Province-led Agriculture and Fisheries Extension Systems (PAFES)

To strengthen the collaboration between DA, local government units, academe, and private sector, the Provincial Agricultural and Fisheries Extension Systems (PAFES) will be institutionalized to bring extension services to the grassroots level amid the challenges of devolution.

With PAFES, the province serves as an extension hub that synchronizes agricultural plans and programs as well as orchestrate the activities of the various stakeholders. DA will co-plan, co-invest, co-implement, and co-monitor priority projects in the provinces, particularly as they embark on commodity specializations to maximize comparative advantage.
