How extension workers in Egypt educated farmers in population and environmental concerns

A joint publication of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the United Nations Population Fund and the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation, Government of Egypt


Environmental pollution and food insecurity issues have been surfacing in Egypt as a result of rapid population growth. Egypt’s agricultural extension service is working to alleviate problems related to population, environment and production.

The project is funded jointly by the Government of Egypt and the United Nations Population Fund and technically supported by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
