ASEAN Young farmer leaders commit to ensure access to land for rural youth

Young farmer leaders from ASEAN countries gathered for the ASEAN-EU Youth Forum held on October 25-26, 2017 in ASEAN Secretariat, Jakarta, Indonesia. Young leaders are concerned that the exodus of rural youth causes serious problems. They signed a declaration to ensure rural youths’ access to land through the provision of a national legal framework and a regional guideline facilitating easier transfer of land rights to young farmers.

The ASEAN-EU Youth Forum is a continuation of the RoundTable Discussion on Strengthening Farmers’ Organizations/Agricultural Cooperatives and Attracting Youth in Agriculture, which previously took place on 2016 at the ASEAN Foundation.They declared their agreements and call for actions drawn from their sharing, collective reflection a

The compelling findings give insight on how to maximize market systems development for resilience-building in fragile, thin-market and weak-governance contexts, helping communities achieve and sustain economic and social well-being in the face of shocks and stresses.

Their recommendations for action that emerged from learning across the three contexts are:

Circular Agribusiness in the dairy sector: Let’s close the loops?

“Closing the loops within the dairy farm can save resources, finances, and create new value for both the farmer, the direct environment, and the neighboring farmers.”

Dutch Network meeting with Van Hall Larenstein students & AgriProFocus members- 26 October 2017

There is an interesting potential to enhance circularity in the dairy sector as well as in other agricultural sectors. Applying circular economy principles in agribusiness helps to save resources, to reduce the amount of waste and the negative environmental impact, and creates value. A ‘circular dairy economy’ tool developed by VHL Master student Mr. Mehrab Marri was discussed in a network meeting with AgriProFocus members and VHL students. The meeting generated interesting ideas for further learning on the concepts and practice of Circular Economy Agribusiness.

“Overusing Antibiotics in the Livestock Sector: something can be done!”

On September 28, the fifth Food for All Talk (#FFATalks) under the WBG-Netherlands Partnership took place, entitled “Overusing Antibiotics in the Livestock Sector: something can be done!”.

Integrating behavioral change to accelerate Women's Economic Empowerment 

Two weeks ago I shared the Women’s Economic Empowerment Framework on this platform. In this blog I want to ask your attention for interesting research supporting the logic of this framework and translating it into action by the Enhancing Opportunities for Women's Enterprises (EOWE) programme 

In many developing countries women’s productivity in agricultural businesses is lower than that of men. The key question is then: how do we diagnose this problem? Possible reasons for the lower productivity of women in agriculture may be that women have less access to inputs, finance, markets or knowledge.

Whereas increasing access to inputs, finance, markets and knowledge for female farmers makes sense in areas where access is lacking, it is also important to examine factors that could influence whether female farmers will actually make use of this access and benefit from it.

PETER KOLAWOLE Gender differences in roles and resources in agricultural production and in women’s and men’s participation in household decision-making around resource allocation, technology adoption, marketing and food consumption are relevant, though likely in different ways, across the different value chain sites. These differences imply that in order to achieve its expected outcomes, investments are to be made to understand these gender differences, their causes and their consequences.

How to Make Cow Dung into Organic Fertilizer:

Currently, the most common and valuable processing method is to turn cow dung/manure into sellable organic fertilizer. Cow dung is a derived product from wastes produced by cattle, providing high levels of organic materials and rich in nutrients, including about nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium as well as many other essential nutrients. According to the data, daily cow dung contain 12.9% DM and excreting a total of 0.15kg N, 0.04kg P and 0.08kg K. Moreover, cow manure also contains high levels of ammonia that can almost kill the growth of the pathogens. Once raw cow dung composted by professional compost turner, it can provide lots of benefits to the garden and organic farm, which makes cow manure very popular and useful raw material of organic fertilizer production.
