ROLE OF SOCIAL SCIENCES IN THE NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH SYSTEM

CRISP recently participated in the Discussion on Role of Social Sciences in the National Agricultural Research System organized by the National Academy of Agricultural Sciences (NAAS) at New Delhi (23 May 2015).

The National Academy of Agricultural Sciences (NAAS) decided to organize a brainstorming meeting to discuss the status, present role and constraints, future role and how to strengthen social sciences in NARS to play the expected future role well. NAAS was feeling that while social sciences could play a larger role currently within NARS, their role is not sufficiently recognised and a lot more needs to be done to strengthen the capacities of social scientists to play this larger role. A presentation on the current status of Agricultural Extension discipline and the nature of challenges it faces was developed by CRISP. The proceedings from this meeting would be brought out by NAAS shortly.
