Abstract
To improve dissemination of new technologies in the mandate area of the National Dryland Farming Research Centre (NDFRC) at Katumani, is was considered that more attention should be paid to the identification and analysis of key stakeholders (actors) in information dissemination activities in the area, and the various sources of information used by different types of farmers. The concept of Agricultural Knowledge and Information Systems (AKIS) and the methodology of the Rapid Appraisal of Agricultural Knowledge Systems (RAAKS) might be helpful in doing this . Therefore, a workshop on Agricultural Knowledge and Information Systems was organised at NDFRC Katumani from 23-24 June 1998, funded by the Netherlands support to the Regional Research Programme. The objectives of the workshop are presented below.
