Designing for Youth Inclusion in Agriculture and Food Systems
To achieve the objectives of the U.S. Government Global Food Security Strategy (GFSS) and “A Food-Secure 2030” vision, we need to harness the creativity and energy of youth. There is a strategic imperative for investing in youth: young people are critical to global stability, economic growth, and development today and into the future. The Project Design Guide for Youth-Inclusive Agriculture and Food Systems (Volumes I & II) bridges the US government Global Food Security Strategy objectives and builds on USAID’s youth inclusion policy, embodied in USAID’s Youth in Development Policy.
This fact sheet provides an overview of the background and the top takeaways from both guides.
