2016 Making Cents Global Youth Economic Opportunities Summit
 
02:27
Over the next decade, a billion young people will enter the job market. Advancing youth economic inclusion, impact and scale is therefore a global priority. How the international development community meets this challenge will be informed by critical demographic, economic and political shifts, coupled with technological innovations that change the way we learn, communicate and work. Today, nearly half of all youth in developing nations are not engaged in work or study. How do we reach, and create pathways, for young people at the margins? The global economy must create 600 million jobs over the next 10 years – five million jobs each month – to match projected youth employment rates. How will we bridge the gap between the demand for jobs, and job creation? The world of work is changing. What does it mean for young people? How do cross-cutting issues of gender, technology, and conflict impact youth economic opportunities today, and in the next ten years? The 10th Anniversary Global Youth Economic Opportunities Summit offers an important convening space to talk about these challenges, and identify together, how we will tackle them over the next decade. The Summit theme’s focus on results and scale is designed to support technical deep dives, while connecting this work to the big picture—helping youth lead productive, engaged and healthy lives. -------------- www.agrilinks.org

Fishing for Food Security: Cambodia's Community Fish Refuges
 
06:01
In rural Cambodia, fish is an important source of food and income to millions of people; providing over 80% of the animal protein in the national diet. Generating income from fisheries requires relatively little capital investment and no land ownership, which makes fishing a viable livelihood option for poor people. Notably, nearly all rural households in Cambodia engage in fishing in seasonally inundated rice fields for both income and food. However, fish populations in such natural wetlands are under threat from the degradation of aquatic habitat, illegal fishing, increasing population, demand for fish, and harmful pesticides from agricultural runoff. WorldFish’s Rice Field Fisheries Enhancement Project (RFFEP) worked to rebuild and protect fish populations by working with rural communities to sustainably strengthen rice field fisheries through protected habitats called "community fish refuges." The rice field fisheries agro-ecosystem is made up of three domains: the rice fields, the CFRs and the connecting channels; all are habitats for fish and other aquatic life. CFRs can be natural or artificial, but importantly, they retain water and fish year-round. While fishing in CFRs is prohibited during the dry season, providing safe refuges for fish off-season helps to stabilize and revitalize fish populations in the rice fields. Agrilinks caught up with WorldFish’s Blake Ratner, Director of Research, and Dr. Shakuntala Thilsted, Program Leader for Value Chains and Nutrition, during the USAID Global Learning and Evidence Exchange on Climate-Smart Agriculture held in Siem Reap, Cambodia last December, to learn about the approach. ------------ www.agrilinks.org

A Systems Approach to Climate-Smart Agriculture
 
05:29
In this video, 2016 Climate-Smart Agriculture, CSA, GLEE participants share perspectives on CSA as an approach and not as a list of practices to help us achieve Feed the Future goals. Climate Change is a cross-cutting theme in Feed the Future. Reducing farmer risk to weather variations is critical for decreasing poverty and improving nutrition through agriculture development. Feed the Future is addressing climate change by fully incorporating and scaling up climate-smart agriculture (CSA) through the value chain approach. CSA gained recognition in September 2014 during the launch of the Global Alliance on Climate-Smart Agriculture (GACSA) at the U.N. Climate Summit. African leaders also acknowledged the importance of CSA in the Malabo Declaration (June 2014), which set a goal of 25 million farm households practicing CSA by 2025 (referred to as Vision 25x25). In addition, the adaptation pillar of CSA is strongly linked to Executive Order 13677 on Climate-Resilient International Development, which requires climate screening of international development investments. ------------ www.agrilinks.org

From Research to Scaling to Sustainability
 
01:37:53
Achieving population-level impacts within Feed the Future will require scaling up—ensuring that more people benefit from access to and effective use of agricultural technologies. This process starts with research and innovation to generate technologies that can benefit smallholder farm families and other entrepreneurs along the value chain. At the 2014 Feed the Future Global Forum, Julie Howard, Chief Scientist for the USAID Bureau for Food Security, guided an interactive discussion with a diverse set of experts who are leading some of the most interesting and innovative scaling experiments in the world. Participants learned about innovation and changing expectations of researchers in developing technologies that can eventually be scaled; the challenges of scaling up the adoption of improved maize varieties and other technologies that could dramatically increase smallholder farmer yields and incomes in Africa; the role of small businesses and the service provider model in sustainably scaling up the adoption of small-scale farm machinery; and how a new model of partnership in Ethiopia, the Agricultural Transformation Agency, is working with a range of public and private sector organizations to find and scale innovative solutions to intractable problems.

Reaping Rewards with Resilient Rice in Cambodia
 
04:03
Although rice has long been a staple of Southeast Asia, per country, Cambodia has the lowest rice yields in the region. Other circumstances threaten the Cambodian subsistence farmer, who make up about 80% of the country’s population. These threats include extreme weather events, overreliance on a few strains of rice, and longer growing seasons for a single rice crop when compared to the country’s neighbors. To help improve yields, IRRI has developed a new breed of rice, CAR 15, for Cambodian farmers. The rice has been engineered to withstand droughts and its growth cycle allows a farmer to harvest three times in a growing season rather than two. Because of innovations like these, Feed the Future is helping Cambodian rice and aquaculture farmers escape poverty. In 2015, FTF-supported rice farmers, about 40 percent of whom are women, increase their incomes by 55 percent and since 2014, rice production has increased from 158,000 to 255,076 metric tons. ------------------ https://agrilinks.org/ Sources: http://news.irri.org/2016/08/cambodian-farmers-adopting-climate.html https://feedthefuture.gov/sites/default/files/resource/files/2016%20Feed%20the%20Future%20Progress%20Report_0.pdf https://www.usaid.gov/sites/default/files/documents/1864/USAID-Cambodia_NCP.pdf

Policy Responses Food Price Volatility
 
07:05
Between 2007 and 2008, world governments made decisions that, in conjunction with extreme weather events, turned an already alarming food supply and demand situation into a global food price crisis. This begs the question: How do governments make food policy decisions? Are they driven by data, special interests, theories of change or a combination of the above? This seminar addressed these questions, which are particularly timely as governments prepare for the next round of predicted food price fluctuations (grain prices in the international market have already become unstable). Will governments be ready to deal with the outcomes? Per Pinstrup-Andersen, World Food Prize laureate and Professor at Cornell University, shared findings from a recent project, “The Political Economy of Food Price Policy.” This project was undertaken in collaboration with researchers from 14 developing countries and sought to improve the understanding of factors affecting government decision-making related to food policy during periods of food price volatility. Danielle Resnick, research fellow at IFPRI and the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Security Policy, then elaborated on a broader conceptual framework of drivers of policy change in agriculture and nutrition. They shared results from these two projects, as well as insights about how interest groups and governments shape food policy.
