The objective of this report Is to take a closer look at the first of these two important issues underlying the human resources problem within the agriculture sector, and to suggest a strategy that would lead to a programme of action for guiding member states in their individual and collective efforts to achieving food self-sufficiency in the years ahead. The report begins with an over-view of the manpower situation and requirements within the sector by 1980 and what that picture could look like by the year 2000.
