Harnessing the power of youth in agriculture: A new report and policy brief on inclusive agripreneurship in Africa
We are excited to announce our new report and policy brief on inclusive youth agripreneurship in Africa. They are the result of a collaboration led by The Broker with the Netherlands Food Partnership and INCLUDE. The report, which is a result of a collaborative research approach, aims to strengthen the evidence base on good practices for youth agripreneurship programs and policies in Africa.
The project focused on understanding the key interventions and frameworks that can be implemented to improve youth engagement in the field of agripreneurship and how to create an enabling environment for aspiring youth agripreneurs. To ensure that the research addresses the priorities and concerns of youth, a reference group consisting of representatives from youth-led organizations and networks was an integral component of this project. Similarly, a group of policymakers was consulted in the creation of the policy brief.
