The North American Agricultural Advisory Network (NAAAN) is an emerging formal network of stakeholders in agricultural advisory services.
The NAAAN links existing agricultural extension communities with one another and with stakeholders in Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. The NAAAN connects with counterparts in other countries through its membership in the Global Forum for Rural Advisory Services (GFRAS), an international non-governmental organization, which has regional networks around the world and serves as the voice for agricultural extension programs and service providers.
The NAAAN is a North American platform among advisory services organizations, including government extension services, that promotes and supports innovation, knowledge utilization, and information sharing across rural and urban landscapes in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. NAAAN will share North American best practices and facilitate learning from global best practices.
A NAAAN Steering Committee representing member countries and institutional stakeholders will provide strategic guidance to the NAAAN Secretariat and programming activities. The committee will have nine members: two committee members and one ex officio member from each country.View the Steering Committee
