Physics for Rural Development: A Sourcebook for Teachers and Extension Workers in Developing Countries by Digby G. Swift



Physics for Rural Development : A Sourcebook for Teachers and Extension Workers in Developing Countries. Explains the applications of physics to technologies and techniques used in the rural third world. Each chapter deals with an area of physics, such as waves or heat transfer, and applies this topic to such rural development concerns as the design of a water tower or a solar water heater.

First of all, as the development of rural and urban areas is not the same, while there are plenty choices of jobs with higher salary in cities, the shortage of working choices is happening in countryside. Moreover, the population of rural areas is increasingly rising due to the lack of birth-control which derives from low educational level. Thus, people from countryside need to seek for more job opportunities to live as well as afford to bring up their children. However, this trend affects negatively the development of the country. The initial consequence is the explosion of urban population which puts even more tension on the overloaded traffic system, infrastructure like accommodation, health care and education system. Another problem that is happening commonly is unemployment in cities as there are not enough jobs to meet the rising demands of too many job hunters.

Development of rural areas has witnessed increasing attention globally, especially over the past three to four decades. The highpoint in the renewed global interest in the development of rural people and their environment was reached with the setting of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in the year 2000. All of the set goals are basically rural development goals. The struggle thus continues for rural development. As long as problems of poverty, disease, illiteracy, unemployment, poor infrastructure, environmental degradation and others persist (or increase) in rural communities, better and more result-oriented solutions to perennial and emerging problems of rural communities would be required. This book not only looks at rural development from its multi-dimensional perspectives, it is also a product of the experiences and expertise of distinguished scholars across the continents.

There will then follow a chapter with case studies, a chapter on cross-cutting issues and the final chapter drawing conclusions and recommendations on the way forward to increase the prevalence of food security in developing countries. A glossary and Bibliography will round off the book. Presents all aspects of food security in a logical sequence.

Naturally, the human resource development effort has to provide for the entire agricultural, and indeed the rural, population, not only those classified as economically active. In particular, interventions in the areas of basic literacy, health and nutrition have to reach people well before they grow to become members of the PEA. The magnitude of the task can be appreciated from a few related parameters. In developing countries, an important proportion of farm work continues to be done by women but only 17 percent of agricultural extension workers are women. If the proportion of women extension workers remains constant over the projection period, there will be approximately 330000 female extension workers by the year 2010.
