Problem

Limited availability of technical expertise in remote communities

Other Names:
Shortage of industrial skills in rural areas
Low-level technical skills in outback regions
Insufficient reservoir of technical abilities for local development
Technological knowledge void in small communities
Nature:

Local people require knowledge of business and finance, the use of construction and mechanical equipment, and improved farming methods, in order for the community to become self-sufficient and self-reliant. However, the necessity of devoting all efforts to the pursuit of subsistence-level farming, and the distance and travel cost to any practical training schools makes it virtually impossible for working adults to obtain these skills.

Incidence:

[Developing countries] In vast areas of developing countries, there are hardly any systematic facilities for the training of operatives such as tractor drivers, truck drivers, cement mixer operators and processing machinery operators.
