Catalysing actionable knowledge to facilitate next-generation ACP agriculture through youth entrepreneurship, job creation and digitalisation

Event Overview

After a successful first series of experience capitalisation on digitalisation, CTA holds the second series of the workshops focusing on youth and entrepreneurship. The workshop focuses on how digital applications combined with suitable business models, incubators, accelerators and other support offer opportunities for youth entrepreneurship, and agribusiness development to transform next-generation agriculture, and ultimately create more jobs.

This is part of a series of workshops aimed at informing future and ongoing investment on CTA intervention areas and working with partners and experts to take stock of the key insights and synthesise lessons from what really works for next-generation ACP agriculture and rural development practice and policies.

This meeting is planned as a participatory exercise where different people contribute to, sharing and capturing significant lessons and documenting what works. Participants:

  • Identify, assess, document and communicate digital agribusiness business cases that work for ACP agriculture
  • Stocktake and assess key elements of CTA’s work in digitalisation and value chains, bringing together key individuals and partners to co-create and document experiences for wider application
  • Generate insights, evidence and lessons from across CTA’s portfolio, communicating the products to priority target audiences

Leverage the innovation and knowledge generated to engage and inform policies and practices, enhancing the delivery of next generation agriculture in ACP countries and enhancing CTA’s own offer.
