Young People In Agriculture Before, During, And Post COVID-19

How is IFAD helping young farmers cope with the COVID-19 crisis and build resilience for the future? This month we will hear from IFAD's Associate Vice President, Paul Winters, on this topic and more. Rahul Antao, from IFAD's youth team, will tell us all about youth empowerment and the agribusiness hubs.

We will take you to the Pacific Islands where Recipes for Change Chef Lance Seeto has some news to share about his new Fijian restaurant. Danietta Apisai will also join us from Kiribati for important updates on the islanders' relationship with food and reaction to the pandemic.

Three young agripreneurs will give us some insight into their growing businesses - Zeinorin from India, Elly from Kenya, and Mirna from the Dominican Republic.

Thales Mendonça, Brazilian organic farmer, will tell us about how he had to reshape his farming business to adapt to the Coronavirus pandemic. He is also the Latin America secretary of the Intercontinental Network of Organic Farmers' Organizations.

Our Recipes for Change Chef Bela Gil also has some stories to share about her path as a nutritionist, chef, author, and advocate.
