FAO, ROME, 2010
|The work of FAO on education for rural people is included in a communication and information package on FAO and the Millennium Development Goals developed by the Office of Corporate Communications and External Relations (OCE), which includes factsheets providing an overview of FAO’s involvement in each of the MDGs, a booklet describing FAO’s approach towards each of the Goals and the inter-linkages between them. All the materials have been prepared in the six official languages of FAO.
FAO is involved in the MDG2 leading the partnership Education for Rural People (ERP). ERP fosters rural peoples’ capacity to be food secure and to manage natural resources in a sustainable way through increasing access to quality education and skills training for all rural children, youth and adults. FAO also provides technical assistance to member countries for implementing school gardens and school-feeding programmes, which can encourage school attendance and bring direct nutritional benefits to children.
This booklet is an useful tool for teachers and policy makers.|
