Farms. Food. Future.
New Vision, New Year
In this month’s episode we’ll be focusing on indigenous peoples and youth as agents of change in the developing world. Kicking off the New Year Associate Vice President at IFAD Meike Van Ginneken sums up last year’s response to the COVID-19 crisis and tells us about IFAD’s first ever virtual Governing Council. We’ll be hearing from IFAD’s Mattia Prayer Galletti, project representatives nominated to the Indigenous Peoples Forum Awards Christopher Bartlett and Maria Manwo from Vanuatu, and Liu Nianhua from China with some new proposals youth bring to agriculture for this New Year. Introducing our new ACUA miniseries on Women Leaders we’ll be talking to women leaders working with the ACUA Foundation about gender, nutrition, afrodescendant peoples, climate change and this month – accompanied by Lina Medina from Colombia – about youth. Finishing this first edition for 2021, Guilherme Brady from FAO tells us about the UN Decade of Family Farming and our reporter Freddie Harvey Williams brings us IFAD’s new report on Nature-based solutions.
