The IYET recognises the important role of agriculture in promoting sustainable youth enterprises. The IYET continuously seeks to identify the challenges and opportunities of youth employment and entrepreneurship in agriculture, ensuring that youth issues are placed at the centre of livelihood programming in Uganda. Some of the ways in which the IYET contributes to achieving this objective are as follows:
- The IYET conducts field visits to interact with youth in agriculture, particularly in Northern Uganda to learn first-hand from their experiences and identify together with them the challenges and opportunities in agriculture
- The IYET holds regular multi-stakeholder meetings meetings to discuss the issues of youth in agriculture and how to address them. These meetings bring together several actors in the youth, agriculture, and livelihoods space. Through these repeated interactions, the issues of youth in agriculture remain at the centre of livelihood programming.
- There are a number of platforms that exist whose objectives focus on development issues in Uganda. The IYET advocates for the youth on various platforms including, holding meetings with relevant actors to highlight the plight of youth in agriculture.
