Date: Start in 06 Jun 2016

Location: Nairobi, Kenya

Society for International Development  (SID) is an international network of experts and organizations with an interest in development, policy and governance research and dialogue. For close to 60 years, SID has been at the forefront of reappraising prevalent development ideas, confronting the theory and practice of development, challenging existing practices and suggesting alternative approaches.

In March 2015, through the Youth Livelihoods, Employment and Agricultural Transformation Programme, SID brought together stakeholders in agriculture from the East African region to a three day workshop in Tanzania aimed at understanding how increased youth participation in the agricultural sector could meet twin challenges of ensuring food security and reducing youth unemployment. During this workshop, participants identified key drivers of the agricultural sector, policy responses developed by governments for the sector across the region and the extent of their impact. They also identified a series of areas for further study and reflection that would highlight key issues informing changes in the agricultural sector and their impact on livelihoods, with a particular emphasis on youth employment.
