Markets and Value Chains

International Youth Day 2016

August 12, 2016

International Youth Day this year focusses on eradicating poverty and achieving sustainable consumption and production. CTA is dedicated to the same objectives, by supporting the development of integrated agricultural value chains as one of the most effective routes out of poverty.

In June 2015 CTA announced the winners of competitive grants to advance youth agricultural entrepreneurship and ICT innovations to boost climate-resilient food value chains. The call for proposals through which these projects were selected was launched within the framework of the Agriculture, Rural Development and Youth in the Information Society (ARDYIS) project of CTA.

To mark International Youth Day 2016 we bring you two reports on progress in the winning projects.
