This research was conducted in the Ramechap and Dolakha regions of Nepal to analyze the role of AFEC in
the adoption of SSMP technology. A total of 120 samples were randomly collected from 4 VDC, namely
Sindrawoti, Chisapani, Namdu and Puranogaun. Both qualitative and quantitative information were
collected using a semi-structured questionnaire, household survey, important informative interview and focus
group discussion. As a result of the study, it was found that the effectiveness of these committees was very
important in participatory planning, resource mobilization and agriculture service presentation.
Participation of farmers in local level planning is significantly higher in village development committee (
VDC) with AFEC (73.3%) than VDC without AFEC (43.3%). AFEC farmers have begun to receive technical
service with 2.84 index values compared to farmers without AFEC. The average adoption level is
significantly higher in VDC with AFEC (43.69% household(HH)) than with non-AFEC (11.78%). According
to the Logit regression model, HH development training and the presence of AFEC were statistically
significant in determining the adoption of SSMP technology.
