In a quest to effectively improve youth development in Ghana,USAID (Feed the Future), through the Agricultural Policy Support Programme (APSP) has provided support to a Ghanaian Agricultural Research and geospatial mapping company, Syecomp Ghana Ltd, to implement an advocacy initiative on youth in Agriculture.
The research and advocacy activity is geared towards having a dialogue, discussing, debating and contextualising issues with regards to “Improving Approaches to Mainstreaming Gender in Ghana’s Youth Policy and Youth in Agriculture Programme; focusing on Climate-Smart Agriculture and Market-Oriented Value Chains”.
This project aims at generating new ideas on how to directly engage youth in more diverse and productive roles in agriculture in a manner that also offers secondary benefits to the larger community. It is an entry point for the thought processes, information exchanges, and potential actions that can enable young Ghanaians to effectively engage in agriculture and promote youth-based solutions in emerging Climate Smart Agriculture and agricultural value chain programs and projects.
Key outcome of the workshop activities is the production of a position paper to document key recommendations to effectively engage young people in Agriculture with innovative entry opportunities across the agricultural value chain in Ghana.
