The purpose of the project was to identify the barriers to uptake promotion and scaling-up of knowledge, information and technologies (KIT) emanating from research in soil and water management, search for means to mitigate the identified barriers so as to ensure the delivery of existing and new knowledge to the target policy makers, planners and all key actors. This report gives the findings from Ethiopia. The methodology adopted in Ethiopia was first to review available literature and reports by the institutions on the subject, then identify and analyse stakeholders who may play significant roles in the uptake promotion and scaling-up of KIT. A check list of hypotheses developed at regional level was converted into a questionnaire which was then administered to members of research and extension service.
