The AGRF Podcast

Oct 13, 2022

Young Rwanda farmer, Pacifique Nshimiyimana, whose family have been farming in the eastern province for many generations, discusses how solving the problem of younger generations losing interest in agriculture is the key to solving the food crisis in Africa. He emphasises how getting young people involved in agriculture should be down to the policy makers; making the job cleaner and less manual labour-focused and more technologically advanced and how the most important thing for farmers in Africa going forward is access to crop protection technologies and how farming careers could give hope the younger generation and his idea for re-branding farming in Africa. In conversation with Fiona Napier from the UN High Level Climate Champions.
