The Impact of Agriculture and Home Economics in National Development
AbstractEffective solutions to ecological problems must be based upon recognition of the diversity that exists in rural settings around the world (Slayter-Thomas et al. 1991). Prescriptive action must also recognize the very significant role of women in managing natural resources in a nation’s development with appropriate target conservation messages and techniques. Thus, family is an important income-earning and consuming decision-making unit in all developing country societies, and it should be a focal point for efforts to put adequate food within reach of all people (Seltzer 1980). Ipso facto, there is clearly a need for an integrated, holistic approach to training and extension, and to expand curricular content in a way that relates the local environment to the global community, and that relates macro and micro levels of interaction.
