Youth and Education

The Education working group is led by Dr. Yaye Aissetou of the African Network for Agriculture, Agroforestry and Natural Resources Education (ANAFE). This network represents 135 educational institutions and is working with them to develop an improved approach and curriculum in agroforestry, including more recent content on EverGreen Agriculture. As young people are the future custodians of the land, there is an urgent need to provide them with the skills and knowledge to be able to manage it sustainably into the future. Staff and students from universities, schools and technical colleges are contributing to the EverGreen Agriculture Partnership through research and building the skills and knowledge of future farmers, extensionists, trainers and agribusiness sector professionals to be able to support EverGreen Agriculture in the future.
