Youth in Agribusiness Community of Practice Kick-off
AgriProFocus, in collaboration with the Food & Business Knowledge Programme (F&BKP), hosted the first Community of Practice on Youth in Agribusiness on September 5, 2017. The objective of the CoP is to share recent work of members on Youth in Agribusiness, provide feedback on each others’ work, identify knowledge questions and ideas for joint action, find innovative solutions for urgent issues, and to get to know other members as well as inspiration for collaboration.
Members in the lead!
Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) presented on Tuesday, September 5, 2017, the research results of a research they did for Plan International in El Salvador, Colombia and Brazil: “Youth employment and entrepreneurship programs: critical factors for effective interventions”.
During an interactive programme, Ingrid Flink and Gabriela Quiroga from KIT guided us through some critical questions with regard to youth employment and youth entrepreneurship programmes:
- How to define youth employment and youth entrepreneurship?
- What are the main factors to take into account when designing youth employment and youth entrepreneurship programmes?
- You get funding for a youth employment and youth entrepreneurship programme: how to start? when setting up a programme or a research proposal.
