Youth in Agriculture Side Event at the African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF)
Arusha, Tanzania
26 September 2012 - 26 September 2012


The Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) will be represented by Ms Sithembile Ndema Mwamakamba at the upcoming African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) side event on Youth in Agriculture.

The African Green Revolution Forum is a private-sector led initiative which will bring together various stakeholders to discuss and develop concrete investment plans for achieving the green revolution in Africa. Participants of the overall will include African heads of state, ministers, farmers, private agribusiness firms, financial institutions, NGO's, civil society and scientists.

The objective of the Youth in Agriculture side event is to demonstrate successful experiences in youth integration into dynamic agri-food system enterprise/businesses, through a series of case studies and/or presentations.

As the AGRF 2012 is a forum for action-oriented discussions and working meetings, expected to lead to new projects, agreements and pathways for scaling up successful interventions, it is expected that the side event will demonstrate the role of youth and their potential as a valuable resource in the development of agriculture and agribusiness in Africa and that these issues be better reflected at the AGRF working meetings and recommendations.

The event is scheduled to be held on the 26th of September 2012, from 10.00 12.00 hrs.
