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.

CTA is collaborating with the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) on the production the AGRA Africa Agriculture Status Report 2015, which will focus on “Youth in Agriculture”. In this regard, CTA attended a write-shop organised by AGRA in Nairobi, Kenya from 26-27 March 2015.

We are very pleased to announce that CTA’s ARDYIS (Agriculture, Rural Development and Youth in the Information Society) programme has been nominated for the WSIS Project Prizes in the category 13 (e-agriculture)!

The global population is expected to increase to 9 billion by 2050, of which, 14% are youth aged between 15 – 24 years. While the world’s youth population is will grow significantly, employment and entrepreneurial opportunities for youth, especially those living in developing countries’ economically stagnant rural areas – remain limited, poorly remunerated and of poor quality. Few young people see a future for themselves in agriculture or rural areas. Some of the major challenges faced are: limited access to land; inadequate access to financial services; insufficient access to knowledge; information and education; difficulties in accessing green jobs; limited access to markets; and limited involvement in policy dialogue.
