Education and Training for Rural Development in Africa.
United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, Rome (Italy).
Development of the rural sectors of Africa is discussed in terms of the long-range effects of proper rural development. As viewed by the author, effective development of the rural sectors is essential to the economic and social future of Africa. The value of agricultural and allied occupations is so important to Africa as a nation that careful planning is of utmost importance. To accomplish effective development, the nation must stress agricultural education at all educational levels. Interest in agricultural development will need to be focused on all aspects of the rural areas: the farmer, the farm family, and the rural community. In addition, the potential of women in agricultural and related occupations cannot be overlooked. Appendix I includes the 1965 and the projected 1975 and 1985 agricultural populations in proportion to total populations; Appendix II presents a value summary of agricultural trade in 1965. (DB)
