A New Online Education Tool Kit on Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries to educate rural people

Rome 26 April, 2005.

The Education for Rural People Tool Kit Web page was launched by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.
The tool kit is a valuable resource for all those whose daily work consists in training the rural poor in the fields of food and nutrition, local knowledge systems, agrobiodiversity, food quality and safety, rural finance, marketing, forestry, fisheries, communication and other related issues.
For the first time, a tool kit including a wide range of teaching and learning tools for the education of rural people is available on the Internet. It provides governments, NGOs, international organizations, rural school teachers, extension agents and the public at large with the latest knowledge on how to help rural communities ameliorate their livelihoods.
