There is increasing evidence and recognition that what matters for development, more than natural resources and man-made physical capital, is the capability of people to be an effective and productive economic agents, in short, human capital. In the particular case of agriculture, most studies on the subject establish that the education and skills farmers are significant factors in explaining the inter-farm and inter-country differences in agricultural performance, although more conventional factors such as availability of land and water resources, inputs, credit, etc. should be taken into account.

Every year during Festival Eritrea, as a matter of curiosity, I go to the Expo compound to observe the development of the innovation corner that is displayed for the public. The purpose of my visit there is not only to observe but to also see the progress innovators have registered. In doing so, over the past four years, or so, I witnessed many young people exhibiting various innovative materials at the G3 Expo Hall. Indeed, every year different innovation items are displayed and, consequently, one wonders what actually happened to the items displayed in previous years.

Under any circumstances, people normally don’t feel good when classified lower than others around them. This is a common behavior anyone perceives. In some cases, however, people sell their identity to benefit from something they assume more valuable than themselves. The different characters people exhibit in the streets makes one believe that is the real image of those people acting in accordance to situations and circumstances. However, that is not always true. People choose to react in any way as long as situations affect them in their life. The choices made sometimes seem worth taking, yet, they become a reason for one to live in misery and hardship. The difference lies in not knowing what genuinely the needs are and what the wants. The controversy of thoughts immerge when the confusion in peoples’ minds are created among those needs and wants, then any habit feels right and what feels right turns into regularity slowly.

Generally in Eritrea and particularly in the NRSR, construction of asphalted roads started during the Italian colonial era. The Italian colonizers built roads, cable transport and railways that stretch from Massawa to Asmara. However, all infrastructures of transportations were destroyed by successive colonizers. All roads inherited form colonizers were all in a shabby condition.

One of the strong characteristics of humans is their unique desire to find new things, through common sense or research. People do not stop until they have discovered new things. Hence, they create a sense of individual environment that result into what we call history and optimism for the future. Many have discovered new findings and proved them on the ground to help the world take its currents steps. Others are still being studied and their secrets will be revealed soon. Hence, a lot of studies related to history, humans and their lives have been conducted and magnificent records have been produced to the homes of their respective environments. Hostile areas where no one expected people ever dwelled, have come out with remains of early humans and other discoveries.
