Rural Advisory Services for Southeast Asia (RASSEA) Forum is a Sub Regional Network (SRN) of Asia Pacific Islands Rural Advisory Services (APIRAS) and a member of the Global Forum for Rural Advisory Services (GFRAS). Faculty of Human Ecology (FEMA) IPB University has been the host of RASSEA since its establishment.

Representing APIRAS, supported by GFRAS and giz, RASSEA has conducted a study on contemporary digital innovations in Southeast Asia agricultural extension. MyAgri in Indonesia and Rice Crop Manager Advisory Service (RCMAS) in the Philippines are selected as the cases. The study aims to understand how digital solutions work, whether there are any challenges experienced in providing the services and further strategies to improve the rural advisory services (RAS).

The 3rd Regional Virtual Meeting will share the results from our inquiries into the two cases, exchange learning among the meeting participants, and discuss the strategy to promote future digital tools in RAS. The speakers are the RASSEA Study Team and the discussants.
