Utafiti Sera Forum on Youth Employment Creation in Agriculture and Agro-Processing

The 2nd Utafiti Sera forum on Youth Employment Creation in Agriculture and Agro processing for inclusive growth in Kenya was held in Kitale,
Trans Nzoia County on March 1, 2018. This forum was organized by the Centre for African Bio-Entrepreneurship (CABE) in collaboration with the Partnership for African Social and Governance Research (PASGR).
The forum brought together 52 stakeholders from the Ministry of Agriculture (Trans Nzoia, Busia and Kiambu), Ministry of Gender, Youth & Sports (Trans Nzoia), the County Assembly Committee on agriculture, Agricultural Training Centers (ATCs), the private sector, community based organizations as well as youth champions in agriculture, development partners, individual agriprenuers, youth living with disabilities in Trans Nzoia
and the media.
The county forum is a follow-up of the Utafiti Sera stakeholders mapping workshop held on December 7, 2017 organized by CABE and PASGR, where
stakeholders recommended that research evidence needed to be shared with county governments. With agriculture being a devolved function, such
engagements would lead to more effective and informed consensus on policy actions that can enable counties to serve as centers of development in supporting youth employment creation in Kenya’s agriculture and agroprocessing sectors.
