School gardens are cultivated areas around or near to schools, tended at least partly by students. Mainly they produce vegetables and fruits; activities may include small-scale animal husbandry and fishery, beekeeping, ornamental plants and shading, and small-scale staple food production. School gardens are run for a variety of reasons. Some that are gaining prominence in all parts of the world are the promotion of good diet, nutrition education, and the development of livelihood skills, together with the power to extend this learning beyond the school itself in a variety of ways. This educational focus can be an important long-term contributor to national health and food security. This paper is a useful tool for teachers in rural areas but also for planners, educators on rural development and managers of agricultural education.

CAPACITY BUILDING FOR NUTRITION EDUCATION IN CHILE         
subjects:  Food and Nutrition and School Gardening              
levels and types of education: Primary education              
FAO _
___________________________________________________________________________________________________
English
The promotion of healthy eating and lifestyles is a priority in Chile’s health and nutrition policy. There has been a rise in levels of overweight and obese people during the last 25 years, which has been attributed to an increasingly sedentary lifestyle and a change in eating habits, especially increased consumption of foods rich in fat, sugar and salt and a reduction in vegetables and fruits and other fibre-rich foods. Healthy eating is essential for children’s proper growth and development. This project aims to orient children, teachers and parents on the importance of healthy eating, focusing on local food habits and priority nutrition issues, through introducing nutrition education in Chilean primary schools. The educational strategy was based on the development of a textbook, a teacher’s guide, five practical guides for students from 3rd to 8th grade and a CD ROM. These materials are a useful kit for teachers in rural areas but also for planners, educators on rural development and managers of agricultural education.

The Codex Alimentarius, or the food code, addresses consumers, food producers and processors, national food control agencies and the international food trade. The Codex Alimentarius Commission was established in 1962 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and by the World Health Organization (WHO). With more than 170 member countries, the Commission is a worldwide forum on food safety, consumer protection and fair practices in the food trade. The Codex Alimentarius is a continuously updated guide for governments and other interested parties in the regulatory framework needed for food control systems, food safety and consumer protection. The international standards contained in the Codex Alimentarius are recognized as benchmarks by the World Trade Organization (WTO). Over 400 standards, guidelines and codes of practice have been adopted to date on: food labelling and crop hygiene, commodities, food safety assessment for food derived from biotechnology, methods of analysis and sampling, food inspection and certification procedures.

EDUCATION AS A WAY TO STRENGTHEN THE CAPACITY OF RURAL PEOPLE TO IMPROVE FOOD SECURITY; TOWARDS A TOOL FOR ANALYSIS

This paper identifies links that exist, conceptually and empirically between individual learning, education and wider objectives related to food security. It uses the concept of capacity as a lens for the analysis. It notes that the understanding of the concept of capacity and what it takes to develop it, has been widened in recent years. It has gone from a focus on training as the main vehicle of capacity development towards the development of individual and organizational capacities as more complex processes in which individual learning of knowledge and skills is only one part, albeit an important part. Capacity in the sense of the ability that individuals and organizations have to do things in practice also hinges on issues related to management, incentives and surrounding policy and other normative and regulatory frameworks. This paper is a training tool for capacity development initiatives aimed at educators on rural development, and planners. It is also a useful tool for university professors, students and researchers in the agriculture rural development and education sectors

This book is a basic nutrition education material written for health workers, nutritionists, agricultural extension workers or other development workers in developing countries, who want to have to design effective nutrition education curricula and material. It provides an up-to-date summary of the relevant nutrition information and gives many suggestions on how to share this information when working with groups of people. The guide is divided into 11 topics that cover basic nutrition (including, of course, micronutrients needs), family food security, meal planning, food hygiene and the special feeding needs of children, women and men, and of elderly, sick and malnourished people. While the illustrations and food examples in this guide mainly reflect the situation in countries of Eastern and Southern Africa, the basic information in this book is relevant for all regions. Similar nutrition education material for developing countries worldwide can be prepared, taking this guide as an example. Suggestions for adapting the guide’s technical information to other areas, as well as for preparing a specific country version, are given.

FAO and other development organizations have been promoting farmer field schools – an innovative approach to adult education first developed in Southeast Asia for pest management – to improve land and water management in Africa. Unlike traditional approaches to agricultural extension, which rely on extension workers providing advice to farmers, farmer field schools enable groups of farmers to find out the answers for themselves. That means the farmers can develop solutions to their own problems. This paper is an useful tool for teachers, extensionists and policy makers.

This guide is targeted to extension workers and educators on rural development. This guide illustrates the process and the steeps to built a farmer field schools – an innovative approach to adult education to improve land and water management in Africa. Unlike traditional approaches to agricultural extension, which rely on extension workers providing advice to farmers, farmer field schools enable groups of farmers to find out the answers for themselves. That means the farmers can develop solutions to their own problems. The extension worker is a facilitator who guides the learning process, rather than a technical specialist who disseminates information.

This global educational initiative targets teachers in order to provide them with information and activities to introduce children to the issues of hunger, malnutrition, and food security. Easy teaching modules have been developed for each of three levels of education - primary, intermediate and secondary - all of which cover, in varying degrees of complexity, the topics of what are hunger and malnutrition, who are the hungry, why are people hungry and malnourished and what can we do to help end hunger. The materials have been designed as a starting point for teachers around the world to introduce these topics to their students. Teachers can adapt and refine the materials to meet local needs and conditions. In addition, a key component of the initiative is information sharing among teachers and students in such a way as to create an interactive forum for exchanging ideas and experiences around the world. The materials and the interactive, online framework encourage teachers to contribute additional lessons and activities leading toward creating a world free from hunger.

This manual targets rural youth leaders and extension technicians in order to help young people in the villages to understand the importance of nutrition and the best food for their health. This field handbook includes a total of 27 lesson plans, a nutrition board game that deal with the functions of food, the importance of a healthy diet, food safety, child feeding and growth monitoring. The handbook incorporates the experiential learning approach and emphasizes skills which will make learning about healthy nutrition more fun and more effective. While this handbook is specifically tailored to suit the needs and situation of Namibia, it can serve as an example of nutrition education material for other countries. The document is designed for use in non-formal settings, for example, youth groups. Many of the lesson plans can easily be adapted for use in formal settings, such as schools.

NON SI TROVANO I LIBRI SUL WEB The Food and Nutrition Education Teacher’s Books were developed for teachers. They propose a theoretical updated vision of the theme of human nutrition and diet. The books contain a variety of didactic routes and activities to develop in class and at home, with the participation of the families. They were conceived to support the school practices that are already being developed in the primary schools of Argentina. The books’ perspective is that food and nutrition are a complex phenomenon that integrates the biological and cultural dimensions. Food education is seen as a challenge for schools. This situation helped identify the need to propose a pedagogical and didactic approach that articulates concepts from different fields of knowledge and that integrates the traditional and everyday practices of the people. The material includes three Teacher Books, each one for different levels of primary school education, and a Student Book (Comidaventuras) for each book.

Neither the Millennium Development Goals nor the World Food Summit’s goals will be achieved if appropriate attention is not given to cities and rural-urban linkages. As cities expand, so do the food needs of urban families. While impacts of the food and financial crisis affect both rural and urban populations, the urban poor have been among the hardest hit. Urban consumers are almost exclusively dependent on food purchases and variations in food prices and income directly translate into diminished purchasing power and rising rates of food insecurity, thus compromising dietary quantity and quality. Changes in lifestyles have further contributed to increased urban malnutrition and diet-related chronic diseases. This manual explains how to improve urban and peri-urban agriculture and consequently reduce urban poverty and food insecurity. This manual is especially aimed at rural development specialist and school teachers.

Food security professionals increasingly realize that they must use communications strategically for their work to have a maximum impact. While most organizations have invested heavily in food security analysis and research, many still need to enhance their communications to ensure that their findings reach their intended users and action is taken. This toolkit is geared towards helping food security professionals develop a communication strategy and communicate more effectively with their target audiences. Specific sections of the toolkit focus on policy makers and the media, because of the important role they play in implementing and influencing food security policies. The toolkit also looks at specific information products such as policy briefs, reports and early warning bulletins, and suggests ways to structure and improve them. A section on writing effectively, which focuses on grammar and style, makes sure that written documents are easy to read. Finally, the toolkit gives tips for using the internet, social media and Web 2.0 tools as these technologies offer unprecedented opportunities for engaging in two-way dialogues with global audiences. The toolkit also includes readymade templates and dozens of tips and tricks distilled from many years of experience. While aiming at professionals working in food security related fields, the lessons in this toolkit can easily be applied to many other fields.

In the broadest sense, home-grown school feeding (HGSF) is a school feeding programme that provides food produced and purchased within a country to the extent possible. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has collaborated with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) and other partners to develop an approach to HGSF. This document is a culmination of these efforts. It focuses in particular on linking school feeding programmes with local small-scale farmer production by creating an ongoing market for small landholders (“smallholders”). More in-depth case studies are also available for Home-Grown School Feeding Programmes in four countries (Brazil, Ghana, India and Thailand). This study is an useful tool for policy makers.

The module contributes to the JFFLS approach by helping the students acquire the knowledge, skills and values they need to be able to build their future and in the specific in knowing and protecting their land, property and human rights and the rights of others. In this way, JFFLS participants can contribute to building a culture of rights in their communities and environments. Secure property rights are central to any effort to address inequality, poverty, vulnerability to food insecurity and sustainable development in general. The JFFLS programme, especially its life skills component, is an excellent channel for introducing the topic of land and property rights to young people. Learning about land and property rights will help students understand the impact that gender inequality in land and property rights can have on people’s livelihoods and food security, and the role that these rights can play in building and strengthening livelihoods and in reducing poverty. This module is a training tool for capacity development initiatives aimed at educators on rural development, and planners.

This paper is a training tool for capacity development initiatives aimed at educators on rural development, and planners. It is also a useful tool for university professors, students and researchers of the agriculture rural development and education sectors. This paper was presented at the "Aid Agencies Workshop Education for Rural People: Targeting the Poor" (Rome, December 2002). The teaching of practical skills in basic education and school garden practices have been experimented for years in many parts of the world. With almost forty years of direct experience in these areas,the author provides a brief analysis of the different approaches, lessons learned and suggestions for improving upon the relevance of these activities. The first priority in educating rural people is to teach rural children, youth and adults the essential learning tools (such as literacy, oral expression, and arithmetic); school gardens should not overshadow such key objectives or create unrealistic expectations.

This booklet is a training tool for capacity development initiatives aimed at planners and educators on rural development. It is also a useful tool for university professors, students and researchers of the agriculture rural development and education sectors. This booklet illustrates the Rotterdam Convention on the Prior Informed Consent Procedure for Certain Hazardous Chemicals and Pesticides in International Trade. It is now better understood that some chemicals as mercury, once they are released into the world, cause toxic reactions, entered the food chain, persist in the environment for years and even decades, and may travel thousands of kilometres from where they were used. How do you deal with such a situation? How do you balance the benefits and risks? To respond to this challenge, the world’s Governments adopted an international treaty in 1998 called the Rotterdam Convention.

This book is a training tool for capacity development initiatives aimed at educators on rural development, and planners. It is also a useful tool for university professors, students and researchers of the agriculture rural development and education sectors. The book is a helpful summary of history, theories, literature, experiences and lessons learned about Garden based learning programs (GBL), specifically for basic education. The document first defines garden based learning and describes how GBL is integrated within educational programmes in both formal and non-formal settings. From the history and the theories of GBL, authors develop how garden based learning is inspired by the concepts of learning-by-doing, project based learning, real world learning and child-centred learning.

These guidelines, applied in Brazil, provide internationally agreed practical guidance for governments and civil societies to build and enabling environment for people to feed themselves in dignity and to establish appropriate safety nets for those who are unable to do so. They show what steps can be taken in different policy areas to promote the right to food. While some steps, such as creating employment and improving rural economies, may not be possible to implement immediately, other actions, such as ending discrimination, require little more than political will. These guidelines are of special interest to policy makers and rural development specialists.

This Teaching Toolkit contains lessons which supplement and support gardening activities. These “garden lessons” should have a regular place in the classroom timetable, on top of gardening time. The “garden curriculum” aims to give learners some control over the “food cycle” process, through planning, organizing, promoting, evaluating and - not least - celebrating achievements. The lessons therefore aim not only at knowledge and practical skills but also at awareness, attitudes and life skills.

This guide addresses children and teachers in Zambia. Among children in many countries chronic malnutrition is widespread. Although comprehensive data do not exist for the school-age population, the indications are that under nutrition and micronutrient deficiencies continue to impede the growth of children when they reach school, while also reducing their capacity and motivation to learn. Nutrition and health education, as part of an integrated approach to health promotion, can contribute to improving the health of school-age children and, in the long term, of the population as a whole. To complement existing initiatives under the School Health and Nutrition Programme in Zambia, FAO assisted the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Zambia to develop an up-to-date nutrition education curriculum. Educational materials for teachers and pupils on locally relevant aspects of nutrition, health and hygiene have been produced. The Pupil's Book and Teacher's Book for Grade 2 children are examples of the new books, which will be made available through the Zambian national education system.

Zambian children have different dietary deficiencies. The reason for this may be that children do not get enough to eat, but even more, their diet does not give them the variety of foods they need. This has a detrimental effect on their learning, as well as on their long-term growth and health. These nutritional conditions are aggravated by other health problems that are spread by poor personal and environmental hygiene and sanitation. All these problems can be tackled by natural means, with local resources, and are therefore priorities for education. In designing the Teacher’s Book and the Pupil’s Book it was also felt important to start from the positive idea of promoting good health rather than the negative idea of curing illness. The lessons of these books encourage good dietary and hygiene practices which will help learners throughout their lives and benefit their children as well. These materials focus on influencing the nutrition and health-related attitude, values, behaviour and practice of school children within the school premises as well as at community level. Therefore, as for the Grade 2 books, the first three chapters are on food and diet and the following three chapters deal with aspects of health which affect nutrition. These materials are a useful tool for teachers in rural areas but also for researchers in the agriculture rural development and education sectors. The Teacher’s Book can be found at ftp://ftp.fao.org/docrep/fao/010/a
