Visit to different Food Production Systems

During the Agrobiodiversity (ABD) Walks, youths are taken to nearby biodiversity hotspots within the community. During the ABD walks, the youths and local knowledge holders collect and identify a number of species and wild food plants that make their local food production system.

Enabling factors

  1. One local knowledge holder from the community is involved in facilitating these visits in the food production system.
  2. The knowledge holder identifies particular species found in the food production system.
  3. The process is being recorded and stored in archives for future references among the youths in the community.

Lessons learned

  1. The youths are required to imbibe this knowledge to understand on how to further enhance our local food production systems.
  2. There is a need to expand local youth networks to strengthen such activities.
  3. Within the youth network there should be capacity building within the framework of such field visits for media documentation.
  4. Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials can also be one of the major contributions towards growth and development of interest within the urban youths that can be propagated via different social media channels and field visits.
