Economic inclusion and sustainable development of Andean grain producers in Ayacucho and Puno

In recent years, quinoa exports and other Andean grains found in Peru have increased exponentially. Unfortunately, this has not contributed to improve the quality of lives for producers. The situation is even more difficult for women living in the rural communities, who account for 69% of all agricultural producers. They have faced significant hardships compared to male agricultural producers. Therefore, the SDG-F has contributed to the adoption of an inclusive value chain in the production of quinoa and other Andean grains. The increase of the demand in the international market will determ...[more]

Improving transitions from school to work through engaging youth in policy dialogue

The objective of this partnership is to achieve improved youth transitions between education and the world of work through engaging youth in policy dialogue on TVET. Youth constitute a large proportion of the population in SIDS. Whilst youth are a huge asset for sustainable development, too many young people experience difficulties making school-to-work transitions and in meeting their aspirations. Unemployment, low paid work and a lack of job opportunities are major concerns. Youth can also have a negative impact on social cohesion and contribute to concerns about rising crime in SIDS.Sustain...[more]
