Abstract

Problem statement: The main purpose in this study is to provide a more rational platform in extension modeling to respond to the very recent world-wide warnings calling up for global revision of the present extension practices to put the appropriate science and technology to application to securing Clean-Green Sustainable Development (CGSD). Approach: To achieve this purpose, extension education was reconsidered through a new view lens of community empowerment. Results: The basic concern though, is based on CSD, self-sufficiency, food security and safety and entrepreneurship development in the agricultural sector and affiliated sub sectors. Fostering the development of catalytic leaders, researchers and educators who approach issues and challenges in research, education and extension from multiple perspectives and seeking to construct an integrated knowledge base upon which the practice of teaching, learning and human development is based are two other major concerns in this paper. Conclusion: Investigating factors that contribute to, anticipating rather than mitigating integrative extension education engineering, human potentials, human capital development, qualitative as well as, quantitative Clean Development Functional Literacy (CDFL) and evolution in science-push community-poll, techno-science extension practices are covered in this paper through an analytical qualitative research method.
