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 s how distance education and distance learning strategies could be usefully applied to the challenges of food security and rural development. Over the past decade, there has been a resurgence of international interest in distance education and distance learning as potentially useful strategies for addressing human development issues. This resurgence has been rooted in part in the evolution of new information and communications technologies, and in part in the improvement of pedagogical and administrative models for facilitating learning at a distance. FAO is deeply involved with processes of education and learning connected to its mandate.
