PAFO, with the support of its financial and technical partners, organizes the International Young Farmers Summit from 24 to 29 October 2022, in Kigali, under the theme: “YOUTH IN AGRICULTURAL TRANSFORMATION THROUGH INNOVATION”.

Young farmers’ representatives from the five continents will meet for a week to exchange on the challenges and difficulties they are facing, and also discuss solutions and perspectives.

This event is an opportunity for young farmers to present their proposals for the future of agriculture worldwide in the presence of representatives of international organizations, the agricultural world, and civil society.
