  • Af-Pak. Starting in 2011, UC Davis is leading a multi-campus project to strengthen extension capacity in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Funded by USDA, the consortia includes UC Davis, Iowa State University, Maryland University, Purdue University, Washington State University. A series of in-country workshops are planned to strengthen both technical skills and delivery approaches. The workshops built awareness and skills required for implementing a needs-driven client focused extension program.  Contacts. Jim Hill and Mark Bell
