Abstract

Effective 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.
