Oladele O. I.
This paper examines the innovative extension approaches for combating desertification in drylands. This is based on the premise that the dissemination of information through extension services has been responding through the changing scenes of social, economic, cultural and political challenges in many countries with large span of drylands. Among the extension approaches covered are: gender-targeting, crop-livestock integration technologies, multi-media strategies of dissemination, information sharing using mobile phones and multilingual approaches.
