Education for Rural Development: An Agenda for Action

This power point presentation on "Education for Rural Development: An Agenda for Action" was given by Sheldon Shaeffer, Director of UNESCO Asia and Pacific, Regional Bureau for Education (Bangkok) at the INRULED International Symposium on Rural Education 20-23 January 2003, Baoding, China.

This contribution complements the article published by SD Dimension (December 2002) by the same author on "The Dakar Framework for Action - Education for All: Meeting our Collective Commitments by focusing on Education for rural people".

It illustrates in a schematic and comprehensive way the required priority actions to make education for rural people a reality. The presentation has a special focus on Asia, although it can also be applied to a wider context. It is thus an important tool of work for those committed to the Education for rural people flagship initiative.
