Thinking outside the boxes

How can agricultural, forestry and fisheries extension specialists start to think outside their sectoral boxes? Can we reorient extension services to break down these artificial divisions and start from a better understanding of the livelihoods of rural people?

'An extension service needs to focus on the land-based strategies of arable cropping, livestock husbandry and natural resource use, but not individually and sectorally, nor in ignorance of other livelihood needs and incomes because the mix of the three land-based strategies will vary in relation to the magnitude, reliability and nature of other household income streams'.
