The Agricultural Advisory Center in Lindau (LBL) and a Frenchspeaking center in Lausanne (SRVA) are members of the Swiss Association for the Promotion of Extension Services in Agriculture (SVBL). LBL supports cantonal and private extension organizations by developing new contents, new approaches and aids to be used in extension services. It organises courses for extension staff and publishes data catalogues and periodicals. It also produces software programs for farm management.

LBL's technical section "Extension in Developing countries" was established in 1984. It is financed by SDC within the framwork of a mandate and offers its services to all Swiss aid organizations and their employees.

The Directorate for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid is part of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It is the official Swiss Government Institution in charge of Development Cooperation (SDC).

SKAT, the Swiss Centre for Development Cooperation in Technology and Management is an information centre and a consultancy group engaged in the promotion of sustainable technical solutions in the cooperation with developing countries based on the local conditions and directed towards locally accessible markets. Management of Technology means for SKAT the strengthening of the local capacities in the South based on professional technical solutions in line with real market conditions.
