The quality of rural living depends on all kinds of infrastructure – from roads and water supply to schools and health care. People require information to make pru- dent choices and take their fate into their own hands. Typically, agriculture is the most important industry in rural areas, and the more it thrives and generates income, the more the local purchasing power grows, so new business opportunities arise. For that to happen, infrastructure development must serve agriculture and enable rural people to grasp whatever chances arise. A virtuous cycle of develop- ment can set in. It can help overcome outdated traditions and foster lasting peace. Böthling/Photography
