What is ARDYIS?

ARDYIS is a framework of actions which aims to raise the capacity and opportunities of youth in agriculture through ICTs in ACP countries (Africa, Caribbean and Pacific).

Its key activities include the Youth in Agriculture Blog Competition (YoBloCo Awards) and the AgriHack Talent initiative.

Sub-Saharan Africa has the world’s fastest growing population and also the youngest. This is a huge opportunity for West Africa as young people bring energy, vivacity, and innovation into the work force and can consequently have a transformative impact on economic growth and social development. The agricultural sector plays a key role in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and represents up to 35% of the region’s Gross Domestic Product.  It is currently the employer of most of West Africans with 60% of the active population engaged in this sector.

25 participants, representing young farmer groups, regional and international organisations working with young farmers, youth ICT innovators/developers and entrepreneurs took part in a workshop entitled "Supporting Youth ICT-based Entrepreneurship and Innovations in Agriculture" , organised by CTA in the framework of the ARDYIS project on 19-22 November 2013 in Arnhem, the Netherlands.
