This video sets out biodiversity through different experiences filmed in 3 countries (Cambodia, Chad, Ethiopia). Biodiversity is vital for the production of food and to conserve the ecological foundation needed to sustain peoples’ livelihoods. It is vital for adapting crops and animals to a range of environmental conditions and contributes to important functions, like nutrient cycling, pest and disease regulation, pollination, maintenance of water quality, soil health and erosion control. Biodiversity provides many services to agriculture, but agriculture too can serve biological diversity. This video is of special interest to secondary school teachers and students, adult community groups and rural development specialists.

To enable their agriculture to grow, developing nations now face the need to produce the additional knowledge and new skills. Human capital development through agricultural education and training (AET) is an essential component of all agricultural development strategies. When substantial changes take place in the context for agricultural development—such as are now occurring in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA)—the agricultural education and training system must be adjusted accordingly. In a number of African countries, such adjustments are already underway. This guide 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 report 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 report presents the findings of an analysis on basic Education for rural people (ERP) in Croatia and proposes measures to improve access and quality of ERP in order to better contribute to rural development. The report notes that the major problems in basic education are connected to educational quality (i.e. the absence of aspects of rural life in curricula and textbooks, teacher-centred teaching methods, the lack of in-service training available for rural teachers). There are also some problems of access, in particular, difficulties with school transport and access to specific activities before or after normal school-hours. In most cases, the main cause of these problems is weak institutional capacity.

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.

This booklet is a useful tool for planners, farmers, educators on rural development. It provides basic and practical information on multiple-use smallholder farm ponds. Ponds add value to farming activities: water from ponds can serve domestic and livestock water supplies as well as irrigation for crops. They can also be used to raising fish which adds value to the water and provides improved nutrition for farm families. The booklet suggests ways by which smallholder farmers can participate in the market economy through better market access and outlines strategies to attract the private sector to do business with smallholders.

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 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.

The seasonal rise and fall of the Tonle Sap Lake is essential for the existence of nearly two million Cambodians living on an ecosystem based on rice and hundreds of different species of fish, birds, plants, and insects, each contributing to the reciprocal benefit of all. But uncontrolled deforestation, the construction of dams on the Mekong River and sophisticated commercial fishing techniques are spoiling the environment and reducing food security. This video aims at creating awareness in the communities, explaining how to exploit in a sustainable way their delicate environments using modern techniques. This video is of special interest to secondary school teachers and students, adult community groups and rural development specialists.

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.

It is also a useful tool for university professors, students and researchers of the agriculture rural development and education sectors. This book illustrates the “Rural Ecology and Agriculture Livelihoods” (REAL) in Thailand. It is an integrated learning process in which children explore what is happening on local farms, gain an understanding of ecology and develop critical thinking skills for addressing environmental, health and social problems; additionally, they grow up in the real world, bridging school and the rural world. The process of getting students out of the classroom and into local fields can break down barriers between schools and rural communities and encourage inter-generational learning and relevance of the curriculum to the needs of rural people.

This manual and the related video Nossa Terra are instruments for trainers which gives them a properly support in teaching. They have been produced by the government of Mozambique, with a technical support of FAO. They are training tools (prepared in the context of a field project implemented by FAO in Mozambique) to be used in the context of delimitation/demarcation of communities and/or indigenous territories. The aim is to reach the educational/training needs of rural communities by making villages communities aware of the land law and strengthening their capacities to negotiate with external investors. They are part of an extensive legal and institutional literature about land rights and land contracts attempting to support the implementation of land law in rural areas using a participatory approach. The VHS video was created in order to be used together with the manual for trainers. Both video and manual are edited in Portuguese. As they were thought for the Mozambique social environment (and other Portuguese speaking countries), they are not available in other different languages.

QAMAR KALIM

This publication is for extension personnel, trainers, policy-makers who would like to refresh their knowledge of the concept of extension. This publication introduces the framework for determining the need for extension reform and also guidelines for modernizing national extension systems. Extension is a function of providing need- and demand-based knowledge and skills to rural men, women and youth in a non-formal, participatory manner, with the objective of improving their quality of life. Since most of the target population is adult, extension commonly applies the principles of adult education to educational approaches and materials to enhance learning. Extension is essentially education, although it falls outside formal education systems, and as such, aims at bringing about positive behavioural changes among those targeted.

This video sets out the Chad nomads’ life which is organized following the rules dictated by their cattle and the frailty of the dry environment in which they live. Now, changing climatic conditions, new economic habits and intensive cultivation in wet environments are putting dry areas at risk, pushing the nomads away from their traditional lands onto the islands of the lake. Helping them adapt to this new life is possible only by combining tradition and new technology. This video is of special interest to secondary school teachers and students, adult community groups and rural development specialists.

This manual 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 manual is the result of collaboration between the University of Reading, United Kingdom and FAO. It seeks to help those engaged in agricultural education and training to identify the stakeholders for their own programmes. It explores the reasons and methods for involving these stakeholders in the development of curricula at three different levels: determining the aims and goals of the program and courses; setting the learning objectives (in terms of knowledge, skills and attitudes, the so-called "KSA approach" to curriculum development); and designing the learning activities by which these objectives are to be achieved. The manual also outlines the implications of involving outsiders in curriculum development processes.

This paper is a training tool for teachers, 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 study was published in "Entwicklung und Laendlicher Raum" on july 2002. According to the author, "school gardening" has often been understood as manual work in the school garden, without educational or social aims. The author promotes a sustainable and more comprehensive approach to agriculture in school which combines educational, socio-political and economic objectives. She is concerned about the "pathology" of school gardening which some critics have called child-labour exploitation or punishment. This refers to situations in which pupils have no control over their crops and no tangible benefits, when proceeds are appropriated by teachers as an additional income, or used by schools for miscellaneous expenses. For these reasons, agricultural labour in schools has often been viewed unfavourably by parents and communities. This article highlights the strengths and the constraints of agriculture in primary schools and provides sound insight on how to overcome the pathology of weak practices.

This report presents the main outcome of the workshop held in Lilongwe, Malawi in April 2005. It presents also a proposed action plan for future work as suggested by the workshop. This workshop followed the findings of two studies on training needs for rural radio in Africa (1999 and 2000). The results of the two studies showed that there was a need for training in Rural Radio in the Eastern and Southern Africa region where no school in Rural Radio exists. This report is a useful tool to sensitize policy and decision makers on the status of rural radio and its practitioners in East and Southern Africa. It is also useful for university professors, researchers of the agriculture rural development and education sectors.

This is a tool for facilitators of the Farmers' Life School (FLS) who have graduated from a Farmers' Field School and a Farmers' Life School (FLS), by adult educators or NGOs and community-based organizations with experience in participatory learning and people interested in introducing the Farmers' Life School (FLS) course into their own programmes. The Farmers' Life School can be used in either community-based programmes or it can be adapted for formal educational settings. The website is dedicated to providing access to the best materials for capacity building in the field of rural finance. Rural finance is about providing financial services such as deposit and money transfer facilities, insurance and loan products, for people living in rural areas. Finding ways to increase the availability of appropriate financial services in rural areas is a challenge. Perceptions of high costs and high risk divert banks from operating in rural areas and micro finance institutions face difficulties dealing with highly seasonal farm incomes, uneven demands for credit and a dispersed clientele. To assist organisations seeking ways to increase the availability of rural financial services, the Rural Finance Learning Centre contains a database of resources organised into topics, online self study lessons and session guides for training programmes.

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 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.
