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.

70% of our global food requirement comes from the 500 million family farms around the world (FAO, 2014). And yet, family farming is often associated with poverty as these farms usually operate on small scales (mainly for subsistence) and generate low revenues. Thus, it is not a surprise that youth are not attracted to family farming.

Laikipia Rural Voices (LRV) emerged as the winner of the best blog for East Africa in the institutional category of the Youth in Agriculture Blog Competition (YoBloCo Awards) in 2014. With over 400 articles, the blog has been instrumental in sharing knowledge from the field to the youth, and as a result, many young people have developed an interest in agriculture and are now actively engaged into farming.
