CRS: resources and expertise to support people and communities
Outreach and Capacity Building
How do we get knowledge and resources into the hands of rural people and communities? CRS develops and implements various workshops, presentations and educational toolkits on how to plan for your community, to where to find data, to how to optimize your farm's Internet presence. CRS believes that knowledge and research have the more value when they are being disseminated for the success of individuals, organizations and communities, alike.
