Example text

Teaching principles has the advantage of enabling the trainees to develop their own systems. The level to which villagers can be trained has not been well explored. The efforts of ANAl (Associacion Nuevo Alquimistas Internacional) in Costa Rica indicate that with careful one-on-one instruction, villagers can become highly trained agroforestry practitioners. Technicians require much more in-depth and thorough training. Their training must consist of both principles and practices. They must understand at least some of the theory underlying the practices they will later employ.

Such training is currently underway on every continent. Rather than reviewing any of these specific training programs, this paper will address general principles and practices of training. There has been very little written about agroforestry training, although considerable training has taken place. This paper will rely heavily on conversations between the author and various trainers. I realize the danger of such an essay becoming a record of oral history and folk wisdom. I shall attempt to avoid this pitfall by addressing principles and disdaining 'war stories'.

The World Bank studied the agricultural research needs of East and West Sub-Saharan Africa from 1975 through 1986. 33 percent of agricultural domestic product was invested in agricultural research, they estimated that upwards of 10 000 additional agricultural research scientists would be needed by the year 2000. There was no provision made for agroforestry. However, if one makes a very modest assumption that 5% of these would be agroforesters and that a further 15% would be agricultural scientists working on agricultural components of an agroforestry system, then we face training 2000 professionals by the year 2000 - formidable as a task, but not unrealistic as a need.
