New realities, new challenges: new opportunities for tomorrow's generation. The IFAD 2011 Rural Poverty Report.

December 2010. The Rural Poverty Report 2011 provides a coherent and comprehensive look at rural poverty, its global consequences and the prospects for eradicating it. In the report, it’s asserted that education is a key component for eliminating hunger and poverty and that agricultural education and training are fundamental for providing skills and for rural development. In the report the education theme is often faced in different contexts. At page 172 (Box 20) an example of the rural education and at page 266 a Literacy and Education table are also provided. The Education for Rural People literature is mentioned in the bibliography and is reflected in many parts of the report such as "This will require strengthening agricultural education, research and advisory services, and fostering greater collaboration, innovation and problem-solving among smallholders, researchers and service providers. It will also require building coalitions, sharing responsibilities and creating synergies among governments, civil society, the private sector – and above all – farmers and their organizations." pag. 8 of the Summary. FAO contribution in the preparation of the report is acknowledged at page 13.
