Young People and AgriFood: Small Grant Competition 2012-2013

Call for Applications
Deadline: 15 June 2012
The Future Agriculture Consortium, through its Young People and AgriFood Theme, seeks to address three constraints to more appropriate policy in relation to the “young people and agriculture” problem in Africa:
  • A lack of analysis that is theoretically and historically informed, conceptually sound and context sensitive;
  • A very weak base of empirical research relating to either the nature of the “problem” or the potential impacts of particular policy responses;
  • A limited cadre of researchers and policy advocates who are actively working on and informed about these issues.
