Summary:

The Principles for Responsible Investments in Agriculture and Food Systems (CFS-RAI) adopted by the Committee on World Food Security establish that, among other social, environmental and economic issues, responsible investments should empower and engage youth. FAO has developed a new capacity assessment tool to support investments by and for youth in agriculture and the implementation of the CFS-RAI.
