DAE Strategy
The Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) is the largest extension service provider in Bangladesh, and has considerable human and financial resources. It istherefore important to ensure that the Department employs these resources strategically to offer the best opportunities for facilitating agricultural growth and development. The Department has completed the implementation period of its first Strategic Plan (1999-2002), and learnt much from the process. This Strategic Plan (2002-2006) is a bold attempt to shape a new future for the Department as it enters the 21st century.
The Strategic Plan is designed to support the entire policy framework of the Government of Bangladesh, including the National Agriculture Policy; National Rural Development Policy; National Strategy for Economic Growth, Poverty Reduction and Social Development (i-PRSP) and the New Agricultural Extension Policy (NAEP).
