Abstract

Modes of agricultural extension and research in Australia are undergoing rapid change in the face of profound environmental, social and economic challenges and the emerging political momentum of sustainable development.
This paper reviews the context in which these changes are occurring and describes several innovative programs, including land literacy, which are expanding the range and nature of stakeholder participation in natural resource
management. These initiatives make distinctions between research and extension redundant, and are participatory in
nature, generating new roles for professionals in agriculture, with profound institutional implications.
