Transformation
Food system transformation
Supportive policies and a good working
environment enable youths and small
businesses to engage in agribusiness
and contribute to achieving socio-
economic progress and building
resilient food systems
Food system transformation is needed
to enhance mitigation, adaptation and
resilience to climate change risks and
enable equitable and sustainable access
to safe and nutritious foods
The food system refers to
the production,
distribution, consumption
of food and the
management of food
waste
ROLE OF THE YOUTH
ROLE OF THE YOUTH
Youth involvement in food system transformation is essential because:
They have a unique perspective and can contribute innovation, creativity, and
activism to solve nutrition, environment, and food loss and waste challenges
Enables intergenerational dialogue, knowledge sharing, and development of
skills, networks, and opportunities for youth engagement, leadership, and
entrepreneurship
For effective and long-lasting contributions, youth need to have access to
education, health, nutrition and finance
ROLE OF THE YOUTH
Activism & Advocacy:
Advocating for sustainable
and equitable food systems
e.g policy support for dryland
cereals
Vanessa Nakateet al.
ROLE OF THE YOUTH

early adopters of new
technologies and practices
e.g use of insect sources for
food, feed, and fertilizer
Ento-OrganicFarm
ROLE OF THE YOUTH
Entrepreneurship: Creating
innovative and sustainable
businesses, from small-scale
farming to processing and
distribution of food
Capacity building: Provide
training and support for
developing the skills and
knowledge needed to
transform food systems

participation in decision-
making processes helping to
shape food policy and practice
e.g engaging in research and
political processes

businesses can offer a range
of different products and
services such as value-
added processing, catering,
and other food-related
services
Fiber Foods

opportunities to promote more
sustainable production methods focused
on agroecology, conservation agriculture,
and reduced waste and energy
RUCID
SMALL-SCALE BUSINESSES
Innovation: Small-scale businesses can
drive innovation that promotes more
efficient and sustainable agriculture
and food systems, from farm to fork
Anne Roulinet al
SMALL-SCALE BUSINESSES
Local and Regional Food
Systems: Small-scale
businesses can support local,
regional, and national food
systems that prioritize access
to fresh, healthy and
sustainable food
Rural Development: Small-
scale businesses can provide
income, generate employment
opportunities, and promote
economic diversification,
particularly in rural areas
CONCLUSION
• Youth and small businesses can drive positive change in the food systems
• Small businesses develop local value chains and promote better income
distribution, with their wealth being more likely to be retained in local
communities
• Small-scale businesses can diversify the food system, reduce dependency on
a single or few dominant crops enhance food security, and overall economic
growth
• Investment in youth and small businesses to strengthen their participation
can improve food security and employment
