This booklet takes a look at the life stories of 12 remarkable African agricultural scientists who are making a difference on the continent and internationally. Ten of them are the women and young researchers who were winners of the 3rd Africa wide science competitions. They are motivated to be part of the solution, and not the problem. Indeed, as researchers they are helping to transform agriculture by developing science-based solutions to some of the complex issues facing African farmers. Their journeys to becoming agricultural scientists are strikingly similar: most of them come from smallholder farms, and their flair for science was spotted and nurtured by their secondary school teachers.

From 14 - 16 November 2012, CTA welcomes some 25 youth champions and experts from around the ACP region to a Strategic Youth Stakeholder Workshop held in the Netherlands.

Youth has been an important area of focus for CTA. Aware of the key role young people should play, CTA has undertaken many activities over the years to ensure that youth are more involved in agriculture. In its 2011-2015 Strategic Plan, CTA reaffirmed its commitment to young people once more by ensuring that they are fully included in programmes, partnership agreements, agriculture value chain, rural development and policy decisions.
