-- [ Page 3 ] --

Enhanced agency and analytical skills gained through the FFS process may prove to be some of the most important outcomes of the FFS approach among poor farmers as such capabilities are highly beneficial when relating to market forces and local service providers.

From the point of view of government and donor agencies, the fact that FFS appears to encourage active and engaged farmers, who base their opinions on empiricism rather than cultural believes may provide opportunities for improved effectiveness of demand-driven service provision and mechanisms for genuine participation of the citizenry in development interventions.
