'Future of Youth in Africa’s Agri-food Systems' Workshop Report is Out


29th November 2023

Earlier this year Foresight4Food in collaboration with the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA), AGRA, and the Mastercard Foundation, held a highly engaging series of workshops and discussion sessions in Mombasa, Kenya. The workshop aimed to gain critical insights and perspectives on the potential opportunities and risks for dignified and fulfilling work for youth in the African agri-food systems. There was participation and guidance from staff of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI).

The foresight orientation online sessions and workshop brought together African youth representatives, youth leaders, and experts in agri-food systems to discuss the future of youth in Africa’s agri-food systems.

The workshop produced a number of outputs and resources including a detailed Workshop Report and Discussion Paper, a useful Data Resource and an interesting Workshop Video featuring the highlights of the event.
