    Youth, who will inherit our global challenges, are often ignored or excluded from processes that discuss or create longer-term policies and solutions for food and agriculture. A youth engagement platform for agrifood systems transformation, including their voice in relevant decision-making fora, is therefore essential for achieving more inclusive and sustainable pathways towards a better food future. The World Food Forum (WFF), launched in 2021 as an independent network of partners hosted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), serves as the premier global platform to actively shape agrifood systems for a better food future, accelerating the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through youth action, science and innovation, and investment, the WFF forges new paths of action and multi-sector partnerships for agrifood impact at the local, regional and global levels to achieve a more sustainable, resilient, inclusive and hunger-free food future for all.

    Building resilience in the Sahel region through job creation for youth
    Bridging the humanitarian, development and peace nexus in the context of fragility
    2022
    Also available in:

    The project ‘’Building resilience in the Sahel region through job creation for youth’’ aims at building resilience and social cohesion among youth while improving their livelihoods stability via innovative approaches to increase their access to sustainable employment opportunities, including via piloting specific schemes (both rapid-temporary and medium to long term ones). The approach of the project, via regional researches, assessments, and adaptations within its employment schemes at country level, also looks at triggers of youth radicalization and youth migration under a socio economic angle with the aim of preventing potential negative coping mechanisms. Given the region’s extreme vulnerability to climate change, a strong emphasis is also given to green jobs and green practices in agriculture.
