The Extension group announces that a new publication, Human resources in agricultural and rural development, is now available electronically in English, Arabic, French and Spanish.

Heads of State and Government, or their representatives, gathered at the World Food Summit held in Rome in 1996, reaffirmed in the Rome Declaration on World Food Security the right of all people to have access to safe, nutritious and adequate food, consistent with the fundamental right to be free from hunger. The resulting Plan of Action emphasizes the importance of human resources development, institutional strengthening and people's participation in achieving the goals of sustainable food security. Human resources in agricultural and rural development (HRARD) is an international forum for the exchange of innovative national, regional and global experiences in human resources development and institutional reforms, aimed at promoting sustainable food security, alleviating rural poverty and improving the quality of rural livelihoods through agricultural exension, education and communication.
