What is a Rural Resource Centre (RRC)?


A Rural Resource Centre (RRC) is a training and demonstration hub, managed by the local community for the provision of agricultural training services, production and demonstration of quality planting materials and offers support with learning resources. RRCs offer farmers access to knowledge, and stimulate interactive learning and linkage to networks of farmers, private sector players, Non-governmental organizations and government departments. RRCs therefore avail opportunities for farmers to share their experiences with their peers and also receive technical guidance and other services from public and private extension services. In turn, they support existing extension systems by strengthening local agricultural institutions while offering avenues for local buy-ins on novel technologies.

Considering their grassroots importance in delivering different technologies, the National Forestry Resources Research Institute (NaFORRI), in collaboration with the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) with funding from the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) established the Mbale RRC in Eastern Uganda. The second phase of the Trees for Food Security project is supporting establishment of other RRCs which will essentially be run by local farmer groups consisting of women, men and youth with the support of local partners.
