This publication shows how conservation agriculture can increase crop production, reduce soils erosion and improve rural livelihoods in developing countries. Three criteria, i.e. no mechanical soil disturbance, permanent soil cover and crop rotations, distinguish conservation agriculture from a conventional agricultural system. The report, through a review of conservation- effective systems of land use in Africa and Latin America, presents the set of conditions necessary for farming systems to be sustainable.

FAO, in collaboration with two regional education networks, the African Network for Agroforestry Education (ANAFE) and the Southeast Asian Network for Agroforestry Education (SEANAFE) undertook a survey aiming at establishing the trends in forestry education and training in the ten-year period 1993-2002. This survey was conducted through questionnaires, scrutiny of records and reports, and interviews and covered 55 universities and colleges in nine African and six Southeast Asian countries. It illustrates what happened in the forestry education systems and underlines content and delivery mechanisms of forestry education and the links between formal education and forestry education. Besides it describes the study methodology adopted and summarizes the findings. The lessons learned and the recommendations are addressed to lecturers, students, researchers in the forestry sector.

This website provides a world-wide resource for foresters, scientists, teachers and other stakeholders. It is a tool used in FAO’s support to develop and implement national forest assessments in developing countries, and can be used for free as teaching material. Advancing Sustainable Forest Management requires that informed decisions can be made at the national level and that progress towards chosen goals can be monitored. This, in turn, requires that effective national forest inventories and assessments are in place to serve national policy processes.

There is a very close link between the Education for Rural People (ERP) flagship partnership objectives which has rural people at the center of its mission, and the development projects in Malawi carried on by various UN agencies and NGO’s. Despite a decade of free primary education in Malawi, the number of girls dropping out of school continues to outstrip that of boys, according to a new report from the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF). This article, stemming from a direct experience in the field, between June and September 2004 in some Malawian Rural Schools, provides unbiased overviews and opinions of a UNICEF volunteer on the Education problems affecting Rural Adolescent Girls, together with some suggestions on appropriate strategies to solve them. The mission was developed in the Chikwawa District, in the Southern part of Malawi, near Zomba. The reader will find inside a lot of updated information on the educational situation in Malawi. All these data are based on oral interviews in the field.

The term “national forest programme” (nfp*) is a generic expression for a wide range of approaches towards forest policy formulation, planning and implementation at the subnational and national levels. As one of the most important outcomes of international forest policy dialogue, the nfp is the first commonly agreed framework for sustainable forest management which is applicable to all countries and to all types of forests. Hence, an nfp serves as a framework to put international agreements on sustainable forest management into practice. The NFP Facility web site offers information services and exchange learning, experiences, evaluation and lessons learnt on the implementation of nfp processes. The Facility supports the nfps as a natural platform for implementing sustainable forest management and therefore forest-related climate change issues. These materials are a useful kit for teachers in rural areas but also for planners, educators on rural development and managers of agricultural education. In particular, the NFP Facility provides a solid local level input for policy decision makers at national level.

This manual is intended mainly for small-scale oil palm farmers and processors and extension agents for use in the field. It gives some practical information related to palm oils, planting material, the nursery, the immature plantation, the mature plantation and processing. Photographs and diagrams show better how to lead the work. The material has been collected from 25 years of practical field experience based on development of cold-tolerance oil palm in poor rural communities of Africa but the manual applies to hybrids in general. The described system uses smallholder production and small-scale portable presses easily adapted to village activities. Women can be readily involved in the processes of nursery operations, inter-cropping, maintenance, loose fruit collection, processing, refining, down-stream products, packaging, marketing, waste utilization, and accounting.

The setting up of this forest reproductive material website was thought to address and make better use of existing teaching and extension resources in the long-term. This website summarises training and extension resources related to forest reproductive material (i.e. seeds, cuttings etc). The aim is to facilitate access to extension resources concerning tree seed and related topics and make it easier for extension workers to produce new, appropriate resources without reinventing the wheel. The study has focused on technical topics. It also tries to focus on intermediate and field level resources. Tree seed is increasingly being collected by and for farmers, and so extension material should be at a level suitable for farmers, concerned with identification of suitable trees for collections, basic principles of tree selection, harvesting and storage, and collection and distribution of quality seed by and to farmers.
