Involve and empower young farmers and agro-entrepreneurs to secure the future of our food

Youth should be part of an inclusive (agricultural) development policy. This is necessary to secure stable food supplies, and to innovate the agricultural sector. National governments, private parties, donors and development agencies all have their role to play to involve and empower young farmers and entrepreneurs in agricultural value chains.

Please read a new article by Marleen Brouwer, Centre for Development Innovation (CDI) of Wageningen UR, via the following link: http://seasofchange.net/2015/03/involve-and-empower-young-farmers-and-agro-entrepreneurs-to-secure-the-future-of-our-food/
