    Strengthening the Capacity and Engagement of Young Somali Professionals in Agriculture and Food Security for National Resilience-Building - TCP/SOM/3802 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Somalia is emerging from decades of conflict and a breakdown of state institutions, including those responsible for leading, coordinating and advancing progress in the agriculture, livestock and fisheries sectors. However, the process of revitalizing institutions is challenged by a lack of qualified and experienced staff in local job markets, as well as recent university graduates who have yet to gain the relevant technical and organizational experience and training required to work in line ministries, or non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and United Nations (UN) agencies. Although Somalia’s work force has considerable potential, including individuals from the diaspora, many require proper training and exposure to the agriculture and food security sectors. Such preparation would render them better suited for employment within these sectors, enabling them to make meaningful contributions toward attaining national and rural development objectives. As such, this project aimed to enable and empower young agricultural leaders to help shape and contribute to agricultural development in Somalia. It aimed to recruit 20 university-trained national professionals to participate in a ten-month internship programme for junior technical professionals, in collaboration with relevant authorities.

    Young people are the future of any nation. This is something always mentioned inmany forums and gathering and in speeches and writings relating to issuesconcerning youth. However, the future also depends and relates to the presentand from which lessons can be extracted and used to address challenges andopportunities facing young people. The present shows that there is a very largesegment of the world’s population who are considered young people or youth (asper the UN definition of youth, those between 15 and 25 years old) of which thereare over 600 million in the Asia and Pacific region alone. Their characteristics,realities, needs and aspirations are unique and require urgent attention.The idea to undertake this project arose from FAO’s participation of the AsianProductivity Organization (APO) meeting on Education and Training of Rural Youththat was held in Tokyo, Japan on 15 to 22 August 2001. There, the reports of the 19country delegates that were presented mentioned of “best prac tices” beingimplemented in the countries represented at that meeting. The challenge of how toshare beyond the delegates of the APO meeting information related to these “bestpractices” was therefore presented. The book illustrates examples of internship programs of training in advanced farms in Japan, Philippines and Thailand. These programs consider that the best means to provide future farmers and future agricultural leaders with opportunities is to learn practical skills necessary for farm management. The programs played an important role in giving practical experiences to farm youth as well as students at various levels in agricultural education.
