We are looking to foster a collaborative platform with key stakeholders through partnerships at several levels. These partnerships will form the foundation for creating a sustainable program that will enhance knowledge and increase the level of understanding of factors influencing youth engagement in rural activities through advocacy and policy engagement.
We will look to generate mutual support for similar initiatives by sharing related content and events.
Making the most of our Advocacy Champions
Our Advocacy Champions are a group of selected individuals acting as spokespersons for the program. These will include influential youth leaders, legislators, policy and decision makers, industry leaders and agricultural research scientists who are campaigning on behalf of the project and influencing their peers and the general public.
Engaging with Parliamentary Committees
We are looking at providing key information for regional parliamentary bodies, such as SADC Parliamentary Forum, Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Parliament, East African Legislative Assembly (EALA), Inter-Parliamentary Union of Intergovernmental Authority on Development member states (IPU-IGAD), Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CEMAC) Parliament, and the Pan-African Parliament, amongst others.
Collaborating with in-country partners
We are expanding our outreach and information dissemination of country-specific information outputs. In order to achieve this, we engage with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) country offices, the African Development Bank (AfDB), and other multilateral agencies, development partners, civil society organizations (CSO), non-governmental organizations (NGO) and community based organizations (CBO) working in the areas of youth in agribusiness and rural economic activities specifically, or agriculture and inclusive development generally.
