This book is an effort by FAO to compile an up-to-date, comprehensive
text on rural structures and services in the tropics, focusing on
structures for small- to medium-scale farms and, to some extent,
village-scale agricultural infrastructure. The earlier edition, entitled
Farm structures in tropical climates. A textbook for structural
engineering and design, published in 1986, has been used for over
two decades as a standard textbook for teaching undergraduate and
postgraduate courses on rural structures and services in universities
throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
