|English||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. It was presented to the Steering committee of the Association for the Development of Education in Africa (ADEA) at FAO Headquarters in May 2004.
Promoting access to education for rural people in Africa is crucial to achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Africa is the region in which the knowledge gap among urban and rural areas is most stressed. This paper proposes to focus common efforts between ADEA, FAO and UNESCO in building the national capacity of policy makers and planners in Ministries of Education and Ministries of Agriculture to address the basic education needs of rural people.
