This paper is a training tool for capacity development initiatives aimed at planners and educators on rural development. It is also a useful tool for researchers of the agriculture rural development and education sectors. This paper illustrates the work of a group of technical staff of FAO and the World Bank concerned with agricultural education, research and extension - and their integration into rural development systems. They worked together towards the development of a Strategic Vision and Guiding Principles for AKIS/RD. An AKIS/RD is a system that links rural people and institutions to promote mutual learning and generate, share and utilize agriculture-related technology, knowledge and information. The system integrates farmers, agricultural educators, researchers and extensionists to harness knowledge and information from various sources for better farming and improved livelihoods. The AKIS/RD vision document is intended as a vehicle for sharing ideas and principles with the various stakeholders addressing the causes of and for seeking solutions to rural poverty.
