National Agricultural Youth Policy Dialogue
Pretoria, South Africa
7 March 2013 - 7 March 2013


The National Agricultural Marketing Council (NAMC) and the Food, Agricultural and Natural Research Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) will be convening the National Agricultural Youth Policy Dialogue in Pretoria, South Africa on the 7th March, 2013. The objective of the dialogue is to deliberate on the issues of youth involvement in agricultural policy processes and especially those policies aimed at mainstreaming youth.

A number of studies point to the fact that youth do not necessarily play a major role in the development of policies. Therefore, the current findings of a country case study “Current and Emerging Youth Policies and Initiatives with a Special Focus on links to Agriculture,” http://dialogue2012.fanrpan.org/sites/default/files/case_studies/Country_Case_Study-South_African-April2012.pdf will be presented. The dialogue will culminate into a policy brief that the NAMC will consolidate and communicate to the Minister of the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries including other relevant departments and stakeholders. The dialogue is expected to bring together representatives of youth bodies, businesses, policy makers, and law makers alike from various industries.
