Youth in Agricultural Cooperatives - Challenges and opportunities

This research carried out by a joint cooperation between the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT), Centre for Development Innovation (CDI) and the Young Professionals for Agricultural Development (YPARD) and the Food & Business Knowledge Platform explores youth’s perspectives and needs for engaging in agricultural cooperatives.

The study contributes to the current knowledge by providing insights from youth (including cooperative members, non-members, young women and young men) in Uganda, Tanzania, and Rwanda. The case studies presented in this report are analyzed from a gendered perspective, highlighting the social differences amongst young women and young men, which are critical in determining how easily and under what conditions key resources, such as knowledge, land, and finance, can be accessed.
