Pre-appraisal mission for IFAD as “rural production development specialist” of the Agricultural Marketing and Enterprise Promotion Project (AMEPP).


Extension Services. deepen the proposals made in respect of the unified extension service, in particular as far as service delivery at the village/beneficiary level is concerned. Careful consideration and analysis of the most recent thinking and policy instruments in this domain. Points that will require particular attention are:

  1. training of extension agents at geog level;

  2. selection and training and technical functioning of relay farmers and village animal health workers as grass-roots focus of extension work;

  3. institutional support, in particular at Dzongkhag, to ensure adequate technical and logistic support for the lower echelon workers in the extension service;

  4. relationships between the extension service and the research establishments.


Other production aspects. detailed investigation of:

  1. the (potential) technical and financial relationships between projected programme activities and existing units and services in the domain of cash crops, investigating in particular the sectors of mushroom growing, traditional medicines and other NTFPs. Aspects that may need specific attention are the supply of inputs, staff and beneficiary training and such like. There may also be a need to further investigate the role of existing research establishments.

  2. Assessment of the validity of AMEPP formulation proposals in respect of the emergency fund for veterinary medicines. Aspects to be considered would be: opportunity of such a fund, its size and the detailed modalities of its utilisation.

  3. Review of the situation in respect of the recently established but apparently still dysfunctional Bhutan Agriculture and Food Regulatory Authority (BAFRA) and its laboratory which would be responsible for certification of produce for exports. This certification is likely to be a core issue for Bhutanese primary exports, in particular of items with "bio" or similar labels (if time allows).
