IICA Canada 2015 Panel Discussion - “Engaging Youth Today to Feed the World Tomorrow”

09/24/2015

IICA Canada hosted a panel discussion to explore the topic “Engaging Youth Today to Feed the World Tomorrow”. IICA has identified the engagement of youth in agriculture as a cross cutting theme in its 2014-2018 Medium Term Plan (MTP). One of the starkest realities facing agriculture in some countries is the extensive migration of farmers into other economic activities or non-agricultural regions. This is especially true of young people moving to cities to explore other opportunities. This often comes at a high cost and with a devastating impact, unless measures are taken to engage young people and attract them to the land. Agriculture offers the next generation a chance to make a difference by producing and supplying enough food to feed the world . Ending world hunger and malnutrition, as well as helping the sector adapt to and mitigate impacts of climate change, provide an opportunity for young farmers.
