Dr. Louise Fox, our guest for the 5th Ndizotheka Eminent Speaker Series event, tackles the issue of youth participation in Agriculture Transformation with a focus on commercialization and productivity. In her "call to action", Dr. Fox discusses economic transformation, Malawi's youth employment challenges and other key factors. She discusses the importance of fixing broader, economy-wide problems that hinder youth engagement in agriculture, but also building skills among youths; expanding access to education and building socioeconomic skills. She adds that critical areas to consider include access to contraception and building evidence base while engaging donors on evidence based scalable programs.
