A summary of the key points outlined in the comprehensive guide, Rural households and resources: a guide for extension workers. It highlights the major issues affecting rural households, and provides users with ideas and tools for sharing information on the constraints and opportunities they face.

FAO's Socio-economic and Gender Analysis (SEAGA) Programme has developed an approach to development that is centred around an analysis of socio-economic
patterns and participatory identification of women's and men's priorities. Over the last few years, FAO has developed a new comprehensive guide, "Rural households and resources: a guide for extension workers" to help extension and other community-based workers to understand the management of resources within and between households, and to grasp the implications of such resource management for agricultural production, food security and rural development. It is intended to help them apply a participatory and gender-sensitive approach in their planning with, and service to, rural households. The guide pays special attention to the impact of HIV/AIDS on rural households and their resources.
