Current world developments and shocks, are potentially leading to a reversal of the rural youth progress achieved in recent years in terms of inclusion, and access to decent employment, in food systems development. This event looks at the challenges today's rural agripreneurial youth face in building capacities toward contributing to sustainable food systems, but also the opportunities these challenges can bring.
How can, and will, agripreneurial rural youth build capacities to support sustainable food systems?
Co-organised by the Swedish International Agricultural Network Initiative (SIANI) and the Agriculture for Food Security 2030 programme (AgriFoSe2030), this event will address the capacity development needs of rural agripreneurial youth and how to enable them to take on the challenges of feeding a projected 9.7 billion people by 2050 in a sustainable manner.
Insights on the topic will be shared by speakers from AGRA, the Eastern African Farmers’ Federation, BARIDI, Sanitation360 and SLU.
Dr. Agnes Kalibata – President of AGRA
Ms Elizabeth Nsimadala – President of EAFF and Director Women Affairs at PAFO
Tracey Kimathi – Founder of BARIDI
Dr. Jenna Senecal - CEO fo Sanitation360
Dr. Assem Abu Hatab – Associate Professor in Food and Development Economics (SLU)
