IC Net’s Approach to Agriculture

Agriculture Sector Heading Sri LankaIC Net’s approach to agriculture focuses on transferring appropriate agricultural technology, strengthening organizational and managerial systems, and improve product processing and distribution systems that lead to long term development. Our studies take into account a multitude of actors to harmonize actions in rural development strategies, and to enhance and scale up targeting of the poorest who struggle with little land and technology ownership. Our rigorous facilitative methods ensure that stakeholders’ buy-in and ownership is protected, farming and post harvest productivity increased, and local farmers associations are strengthened.
