YPARD is collaborating with the Expertise Frances Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework EU Support and FAO on the development of a policy paper on driving transformative changes through decent and green job creation for youth, with a special focus on agri-food systems.
We want to showcase some successful ongoing activities of youths/young professionals that illustrate opportunities for transformative changes through engagements in agriculture-related green jobs.
Work in agricultural, manufacturing, research and development (R&D), administrative, and service activities that contribute(s) substantially to preserving or restoring environmental quality. It includes jobs that reduce energy, materials, and water consumption through high-efficiency strategies; decarbonize the economy, and minimize or altogether avoid the generation of all forms of waste and pollution." (UNEP, 2008)
