Iraq Agricultural Extension Revitalization (IAER)
The Iraq Agricultural Extension Revitalization (IAER) project was announced by USDA Secretary Mike Johanns in August, 2006. It is managed cooperatively by NIFA and the USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service with support from the Department of State. Designed to foster strong partnerships between U.S. land grant universities and the Iraqi Ministry of Agriculture and agricultural universities, the IAER project is intended to revitalize the Iraqi extension system through short- and long-term training, research, other activities. For more information, see the Foreign Agriculture Service's Web site.
