The global population is growing, and getting ‘younger’ by the day across Africa and Asia. Young women and men in these continents need jobs or support to start their own businesses. Food systems are straining to feed this expanding population and need to evolve to do this sustainably. Using tools, frameworks, case studies and interactive sessions, this course blends practical hands-on training with cutting-edge research. It will provide you with a strengthened conceptual and practical understanding of food systems, labour markets, entrepreneurship, education and livelihoods. The result will be a greater ability to analyze these multiple challenges and come up with practical solutions to tackle them.
What will you learn?
- How to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the education, labour and finance markets for youth, and how to improve them;
- How to apply various tools and models, including food systems modelling, to raise the socio-economic impact from multiple country case studies;
- Good practices to apply about general trends in demographics, nutrition, and migration;
- New methods of teaching, training and managing multi-stakeholder partnerships;
- How gender, age, education and access to resources makes ‘youth’ a heterogeneous group and requires different approaches to successfully target them.
