A Compendium of FAO Experience in Basic Education

All for Education and Food For All

Food security and education are inter-linked. What is the role of education in reducing by half the 800 million people denied access to enough food to meet their basic needs? How can education be used to lead almost one billion men and women from illiteracy? How can relevant and quality education be offered to out of school children and those who are undernourished in order to best improve their chances of a better quality of life? This compendium of FAO's experiences with "Education and Food for All" shares descriptions of cases that can contribute to the process of enabling rural people to improve their lives and livelihoods. The examples focus on Education and Training in Nutrition and Health, Agriculture/Forestry, Environment, Community Development, and Business Management. The cases will be of special interest to primary and secondary school teachers and students, rural youth, adult community groups, and rural development specialists.
