Engaging youth in agriculture

Written by ardyis-project

Interview with Sithembile Ndema Mwamakamba, from Zimbabwe, who works at the Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) where she coordinates the Youth in Agriculture project. She also manages the Women Accessing Realigned Markets (WARM) project designed to strengthen the capacity of women farmers to influence agricultural policy development in Southern Africa.

"With a greater focus on value chains in recent years, there are now far more opportunities for young people to find rewarding careers in the food and farming sector. However, governments need to formulate policies that capitalise on the energy and entrepreneurship of the youth to successfully attract them to the sector."

The SPC Animal Health and Production team recently organised a short workshop for Year 2 students taking the Higher Diploma in Animal Health (DAH) course at Fiji National University.  The goal of the workshop, held on 8 June at SPC Nabua, was to expose the DAH students to some of the animal health activities undertaken in Fiji and the Pacific region.
