Youth in Agriculture- Mauritius Case Study
FANRPAN in collaboration with CTA commissioned case studies in six countries (Malawi, Mauritius, Swaziland, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe). The case studies focusing on current and emerging youth policies and initiatives with a special focus on links to agriculture in the respective countries were conducted by youth representatives from these countries. The country reports will be synthesized into a regional report in order to get a bird's eye view of the current situation, identify gaps and better target interventions.
The Mauritius case study was drafted by Ms Nawsheen Hosenally, a former graduate in Agricultural Extension (2010) from the Faculty of Agriculture. The report can be accessed here.
The final report will be presented at the FANRPAN 2012 High Level Food Security Policy Dialogue in Tanzania, 3-7 September 2012. It will be attended by Mr Shane Hurdowar, the local FANRPAN coordinator at the Faculty.
