Urban Extension Toolkit

With the development of an Urban Extension Toolkit, all Extension professionals in metropolitan areas and across LGUs would have access to a ready-to-use training and support system with an equity lens. This toolkit would include standardized measures that could be used by any program area while providing opportunities to reflect the local context and allow Extension leadership to evaluate their progress on becoming a truly equitable organization.
