This volume contains the proceedings of a conference on the role of agricultural education in the development of the Middle East, sponsored and hosted by the American University of Beirut in April 1979. The conference brought together people involved not only in agriculture and rural development, but also in higher education, the provider of trained manpower. In its twenty papers, specialists in agriculture, nutrition, and education discuss basic aspects of the problems involved, and present possible solutions and recommendations for meeting the challenges of the future through enlightened educational programs directed at the needs of the people in the regions involved.
