This book describes FAO's pioneering approach in integrating environment education concerns into agricultural education and training programmes. It reports the process, achievements and lessons learned from the actual experiences in planning and implementing such programmes in eight agricultural education, training and extension organizations in six countries. More importantly, the book provides insights on how participatory and collaborative activities in incorporating environment education through the agricultural extension, education and training programmes had been successfully undertaken by these eight institutions which in the process learned from, and helped, each other.

The lead trainers from the organizations involved in this innovative programme shared their first-hand experiences by contributing useful information and analysis in their respective chapters of this book on participatory environment education and training for sustainable agriculture. This book is a comprehensive process documentation of the carefully planned efforts to maintain practical and relevant environment issues into agricultural extension and education programmes which need to provide more demand-driven and beneficial services to farmers. It also highlighted the best practices in institutional partnerships, peer learning and networking among the eight pioneering institutions in the six countries, which can be replicated, with appropriate adaptations, by similar institutions in other countries worldwide.
