Online Forum for Women and Youth in Agriculture Launched in Accra

The UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has supported the setting up of a multi-stakeholder Online Forum for Women and Youth in Agriculture.

Its objective is to encourage youth and women to act as catalysts for sustainable rural development and to provide an open channel to discuss ways to equitably include youth and other marginalized groups into agricultural value chains and emerging agribusinesses and agro-industries.

This event was recently launched at the British Council in Accra.

Section of event participants

This launch event brought together a range of national and international stakeholders from across the private sector, government, NGOs and academia, all of whom shared an interest in increasing the involvement of women and youth in agriculture in Ghana.

The Online Forum  is expected to help stakeholders engage in fruitful interactions on specific themes and share knowledge and information on opportunities for involvement of women and youth in agricultural investment.
