This paper was presented at the "FAO/UNESCO seminar: Education for rural development in Asia: Experiences and policy lessons", 5-7 November 2002, Bangkok, Thailand. More than 70 percent of the world's poor are to be found in rural areas where hunger, illiteracy and low school achievement are common. This paper recognizes that education is an essential part of any strategy aimed at achieving sustainable rural development that encompasses all those who live in rural areas. Such strategies need to address the provision of education for all target groups: children, youth and adults, giving priorities to gender imbalances. This paper proposes strategies, policies and practices that have to be implemented by governmental and non-governmental agencies to alleviate both poverty at large and poverty in rural areas in the Asian region.
