Education and Rural Development Planning. Report of a Regional Seminar (Bangkok, December 8-16, 1980).
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and the Pacific.
The report of a regional seminar on rural development planning specifies as its objectives: to study the problems of rural development planning, and to elucidate training requirements for managers of rural development projects, with particular reference to the links between education and productive work and employment. The first chapter gives highlights of 16 papers from 12 countries (Bangladesh, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Japan, Socialist Republic of Viet Nam, India, Republic of Korea, Nepal, Malaysia, and Thailand) on three issues: education and training of planners and managers of rural development programs; strengthening and linking the educational and training components (formal and nonformal) of rural development programs with productive work and employment; and planning and management for enhancing the contributions of educational institutions, training centers, and programs (formal and nonformal) to rural development. The second chapter presents reports of two groups into which seminar participants divided themselves for in-depth study of the three issues. The third chapter lists key elements in research, evaluation, and training in which cooperation and exchange within and between countries should be increased: inter-institution communication/cooperation; evaluation of training programs; improvement of planning through decentralization, inter-departmental cooperation, and community involvement; and dissemination of information on innovative training programs, such as those described for Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. Appendices include a seminar agenda and participant list. (MH)
