Keynote speaker Jim Sumberg from IDS will introduce the topic of youth inclusiveness in agricultural transformation. The results and lessons of three country studies (Kenya, Mali and Ghana) facilitated by the three involved organizations will be presented to fuel the conversation. This conversation shall focus on the lessons from the quick scan. A panel of people with experience in this field will give a reflection as a kick-off to the conversation. In order to continue the conversation after this session, the results of the quick scan study cases will be handed out, as well as links to communities of practice.
