Papers designed to help build multidisciplinary training networks for rural development are collected in this document, an outgrowth of a regional training workshop attended by participants from Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Thailand, and India. The six papers deal with the objectives of the workshop which were to: (1) review the functioning of multidisciplinary educational teams engaged in projects related to rural development; (2) review the existing training programs and identify the training and retraining needs of multidisciplinary educational teams; (3) identify innovative strategies and content of training for officials engaged in rural development projects; (4) develop alternative feasible strategies and programs for training of multidisciplinary teams for rural development; and (5) explore feasible mechanisms and programs for promoting networking of projects and institutions in operational program, training and professional support services, to improve their joint capabilities in undertaking preservice and inservice education programs. One paper reports on participants' 2-day field study visit to three rural development projects in India that were engaged in activities such as water and resource development, soil analysis, low cost construction of buildings, adult education for women with emphasis on science and technology, and teacher training.
