Título Skills Development for Rural People: A Renewed Challenge - PAPER 10
Sumario This eleventh Working Group meeting was made possible by the continued support of SDC to its secretariat. This particular meeting would not have been possible without the kind invitation of both the Food and Agriculture Organisation and the International Institute for Educational Planning of UNESCO. The Working Group thanks Lavinia Gasperini from FAO and David Atchoarena from UNESCO-IIEP for facilitating the meeting. The focus of the meeting reflected our visit to the FAO and its collaboration with IIEP on the issue of education for rural people. We also took advantage of this meeting to explore the experiences of several other agencies in this field and to discuss plans by the World Bank for new research in this area. The meeting was organised by the Secretariat under the leadership of Michel Carton and was chaired by Kenneth King. This discussion paper is authored by Simon McGrath. In addition to the inputs synthesised in this paper, a review of current approaches to rural skills development of bilateral and multilateral agencies, authored by Frédérique Weyer and Juliane Ineichen, is available on the Working Group website.
