YP2LE Learning Network Event: Virtual Roundtable on Climate-Smart Solutions for Rural Youth

21 FEBRUARY 2024 | 9:30:30-10:45 EST| Virtual

How can climate-smart innovations enable young people to access decent job opportunities and improve rural livelihoods in the face of climate change? 

This webinar aims to facilitate knowledge sharing around efforts and strategies to foster youth employment in rural contexts, with a focus on climate-smart business models for youth in the agri-food sector. It will provide a space for participants to exchange experiences and lessons on innovative approaches to promote economic opportunities for youth while mitigating the impacts of climate change, as well as to discuss links to future initiatives on food and water systems transformation and just transition.

Co-host Organizations

The Youth Employment Funders Group

The Youth Employment Funders Group (YEFG) is a network of funder organizations collaborating to address the youth employment challenge in a more coordinated and effective manner, and to ultimately improve the capacity of youth to achieve better labour market outcomes and success in adult life.

The YEFG seeks to:

  • Generate and share evidence-based knowledge on what works in the field of youth employment;
  • Ensure that knowledge is available and accessible to all interested stakeholders
  • Act on that knowledge through funders’ initiatives

YouthPower2: Learning and Evaluation 

USAID’s YouthPower2: Learning and Evaluation (YP2LE) activity helps to build and share evidence on positive youth development (PYD) and youth programming in collaboration with USAID, YouthPower implementing partners, researchers, youth-led and youth-serving organizations, individual young change-makers, and others. The goal of these activities is to give practitioners the information, tools, and resources they need to develop high-quality, impactful, and sustainable youth programs, allowing empowered youth, working with supportive adults, to create sustainable change in individuals and systems.

Youth in Agri-Food Systems Learning Activity

USAID’s Youth in Agri-Food Systems Learning Activity, under YP2LE, advances knowledge on approaches to, and the state of evidence for youth inclusion in international development interventions related to agri-food systems, and more specifically agriculture-led growth and food security, resilience, nutrition, and water security, sanitation, and hygiene.
