By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE), in collaboration with the Executive Secretariat of the Central American Agricultural Council (SECAC)and the PROCASUR Corporation, today hosted a workshop on the Regional Strategy for Rural Youth in SICA countries.
SICA stands for Sistema de la Integración Centroamericana, the Central American Integration System.
“The objective of the workshop is to promote dialogue between national actors linked to the rural youth sector,” said MAFSE of the workshop held at the National Agriculture and Trade Showgrounds Conference Room in Belmopan.
The workshop also sought to frame the Regional Strategy within Belize’s National Rural Youth Plan of Belize and to strengthen the role of rural youth in the development of their territories.
The Regional Action Plan for Rural Youth in the SICA countries (2017-2021) was first approved on February 17, 2017 by the Central American Agricultural Council (CAC). Since then, the program has had to make adaptations to regulations and to the creation of organizational structures for rural youth who continue to face challenges in the face of crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change.
The National Rural Youth Plan National Plan proposes the implementation of policies in favor of the country’s rural youth. Through these policies it seeks to promote equality and access to resources. It also seeks to provide opportunities that facilitate greater capacity building of young people while expanding their participation in decision-making and social spaces, said MAFSE.
“These are based on the goals prioritized by the country regarding alleviation of poverty, promotion of employment and social equality,” said MAFSE.
The Regional Action Plan for Rural Youth in the SICA countries was created within the framework of the project “Youth Leaders for the Rural Territorial Development in the Central American Integration System (SICA) Region”. The Plan was implemented by the PROCASUR Corporation and the Executive Secretariat of the Central American Agricultural Council (SECAC), with financial support by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
