This case study explores the challenges to implementing an agricultural extension program in Afghanistan. It focuses most closely on how building a stronger M&E system helps to support the whole program, and how a collaborative approach to learning from past mistakes has created changes and adaptations to old habits.


This case study was submitted as part of USAID's CLA Case Competition, held in August 2015. Taken together, this collection of submissions illustrates the diversity of ways collaborating, learning, and adapting approaches are being operationalized in the field. Stringent judging criteria was used to determine official CLA Case Competition winners, so not all submissions should be considered an official USAID endorsement of best practice.
