Building Resilient Agriculture Systems with Young Professionals
International Youth Day is an annual opportunity to reflect on young professionals’ contributions to shaping a sustainable future. This year’s theme, “Green Skills for Youth,” highlights the critical role of technical knowledge, values, and attitudes in enabling environmentally conscious decisions.
Supporting young scientists in their professional development is a key pillar of ICARDA’s strategy to bring in fresh ideas and innovation that will support the transformation of food, land, and water systems for sustainability and resilience in the face of intensifying climate change.
One such young professional is Muhammed Dayyabu, a Nigerian student at Tottori University in Japan. Through our partnership with Tottori University, students in Japan can now explore ICARDA’s leading agri-innovations that benefit drylands communities in the CWANA region and beyond.
