Abstract

"Rural farming communities are particularly threatened and household security is at stake. Recognizing the warning signs in Asia, a joint initiative between the FAO-Inegrated Pest Management (IPM) Programme and UNDP South East Asia HIV and Development Programme (UNDP-SEAHIV) resulted in the birth of the Farmers' Life School. It began in 2000 with a bold objective: from the poorest of rural farming communities of South-East Asia comes innovation by the farmers, for the farmers. This manual documents the empowerment process, through which farmers decide for themselves how to build their resilience, including resistance to HIV/AIDS risks. Today, this is a movement that is continuing to spread in other rural communities of Cambodia. This training manual is the outcome of the Farmers' Life School project, which was originally field tested in Cambodia and has generated considerable international interest."
