What is the ARDYIS Project?

The purpose of ARDYIS is to raise youth awareness and capacity on agricultural and rural development issues in ACP countries through ICTs. More specifically, it will strengthen the capacities of the youth on ICTs for development issues, particularly in the agricultural and rural sector and contribute to sensitizing youth on the questions related to agriculture and rural development in ACP countries. It is a framework for actions that will contribute to the promotion of opportunities for youth in ACP countries in the sectors of agriculture, rural development and information and communication technology.

I come from a small village in France called "Toutlemonde"; it literally means "All the World" or "everybody". Not sure this drew my destiny but fact is that I am both representative of rural-urban migration and emigration.

This year’s International Youth Day celebration is themed “Youth and Migration: Moving Development Forward.” The focus is for young people to discuss issues surrounding rural-urban and country to country youth migration. This situation needs attention because statistics show that 30% of migration occurs among youths.

Get Youth Involved and They will stay!

With nearly 28 million people, though Nepal is predominantly an agrarian country, migration is increasingly becoming an important livelihood strategy for farm households in rural Nepal. Remittance has emerged as the lifeblood as earnings through agriculture in rural areas is insufficient and the youth prefer to go abroad where they have higher chances of earning more.

I am from a small rural community located in the southern part of the beautiful island, Trinidad. After completing my degree I moved back home but inadequate job opportunities in my field of study, inept mentorship programs and limited leisure activities at that time lead me to move to an urban community. Even though the rural communities were major providers of agricultural produce with the divestment of Caroni (1975) Limited the number of farmers and farming communities slowly dwindled.
