Abstract [en]

Any attempt to readdress our world's increasing inequality, poverty, and widening human development disparities is possible through access to relevant, equitable and effective education of our rural people.  This book summarizes recent experiences and good practices of Education for Rural Transformation (ERT) in two of the most rural populated countries of the world, namely China and India in addition to contributions from different regions and countries , for example, Europe, Tanzania, Nepal and Australia and from other ERT partners,  UNESCO and FAO . This publication is the result from contributions to the International ERT Symposium held in Stockholm in November 2010. A vista of challenges and potentials has been unveiled. The urgency for sytematic research, academic studies and training, and policy dialogue and advocacy at the international, regional, and national levels has been underscored and key actions proposed.
