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 attempts to draw out the main issues and themes discussed during the Caribbean Conference on Education for Rural People: Food Security, Agricultural Competitiveness and Sustainable Livelihoods. The Conference is the latest of the series organised under the joint FAO/UNESCO flagship, Education for Rural People, (ERP) and its aim is to contribute to the achievement –particularly for rural people- of the first three Millennium Development Goals: [1] the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger; [2] the achievement of universal primary education; and [3] the promotion of gender equality and empowerment of women. This conference focused on what the three goals and the special concern for rural people imply for the countries of the Caribbean, most of them small island states.
