CTA’s Youth Strategy 2013 – 2017

CTA has been supporting and promoting youth engagement in agriculture for more than 15 years. However, this Strategy is the first attempt to bring CTA’s efforts into a comprehensive policy aligned with the three goals of the Centre’s Strategic Plan 2011-2015.

Did you know or remember that the two best bloggers of the 2014 Youth in Agriculture Blog Competition (YoBloCo Awards) were women? We also had a Special Prize for the Best Female Blogger. (Re)Discover them and their blogs that they are still updating!

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.
