CTA seminar on identification of priority information themes for rural development. October 1996 Netherlands
, Dr Guy Rocheteau proposed that priority information themes, based on a study of the constraints to agricultural development in the ACP countries, could be grouped under six major headings: conquering markets; production intensification and optimization; improvement of natural resource management; mobilization of the civil society; strengthening national agricultural systems; and poverty alleviation in rural areas. With no order of priority implied, these six headings nevertheless gave a common point of reference for the six regional working groups: Pacific, Caribbean and four regions of Africa West, Central, East and Southern Africa. The working groups of ten or twelve people were asked to list the constraints to rural development from a regional perspective. Retaining on this list only those constraints which could be directly linked to a lack of information, each workshop then identified priority information themes for its region.
