This paper identifies links that exist, conceptually and empirically between individual learning, education and wider objectives related to food security. It uses the concept of capacity as a lens for the analysis. It notes that the understanding of the concept of capacity and what it takes to develop it, has been widened in recent years. It has gone from a focus on training as the main vehicle of capacity development towards the development of individual and organizational capacities as more complex processes in which individual learning of knowledge and skills is only one part, albeit an important part. Capacity in the sense of the ability that individuals and organizations have to do things in practice also hinges on issues related to management, incentives and surrounding policy and other normative and regulatory frameworks. 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 researchers in the agriculture rural development and education sectors
