Feast Your Eyes: Dreams of Youth in Drylands - An Exposure Story

Dreams of Youth in Drylands by CGIAR Research Program on Dryland Systems on Exposure

On the occasion of World Youth Skills Day 2016, the CGIAR Research Program on Dryland Systems wished to raise awareness about the issues facing the youth of today. Unemployment, poverty, and lack of opportunities in agriculture, particularly in drylands, lead the young to migrate to cities where their aspirations are often torn by lack of jobs. This dangerous phenomena risks not only global food security, but the dreams of today’s youth.

To commemorate this day, the CGIAR Research Program on Dryland Systems is launching Dreams of Youth in Drylands, an Exposure story that calls for empowering the young in agriculture so they won’t have to leave home for a better life.
