Iraq Agricultural Extension Revitalization Program
The Iraq Agricultural Extension Revitalization (IAER) project focuses on strengthening Iraqi agriculture by revitalizing the country's extension and educational training capacity. By re-building the skills of Iraqi extension experts so that they may better serve the needs of farmers, processors and marketers, the project will foster a healthy agricultural sector that contributes to national stability. The project will be implemented by providing Iraqi nationals from universities and the Ministry of Agriculture with extension management, production, and marketing training. These training programs will be held in the United States and third countries, and will be implemented through partnerships between a consortium of U.S. land-grant institutions and Iraqi agricultural universities. The project is jointly offered by USDA's Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service and the Foreign Agricultural Service with funding from the U.S. Department of State.
