In 2018, World Resources Institute (WRI) launched the Land Accelerator Africa, the world’s first training and mentorship program targeted specifically toward businesses that restore degraded forests, farmland and pasture. To support the AFR100 Initiative’s goal of restoring 100 million hectares of land by 2030, the Land Accelerator provides entrepreneurs across Africa with mentorship and networking opportunities, technical training and workshops to build up their storytelling and pitching skills. Participants leave the program more empowered to connect with potential investors so that they can take their business to the next stage of growth. The program has attracted nearly 1,400 applicants in Africa since 2018, and its 104 alumni from 34 countries report that they have created 11,200 jobs, worked with 56,000 farmers and restored 127,000 hectares.

Youth for Climate-Resilient Agriculture Competition
Youth for Climate-Resilient Agriculture Competition

IAAS Executive Board (EB) is pleased to launch a new competition to all youth, IAAS members, and non-IAAS members: the Youth for Climate-Resilient Agriculture Competition (YCRAC) in partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). With this competition, we call for projects led by youth, which follow the concept of climate-resilient agriculture. This concept highlights the vulnerability of the agricultural sector to climate change and its impacts on the climate and environment. A transition to more sustainable food systems should go hand in hand with improving food security and reducing poverty. These transformative changes will work to build resilience, green agri-food systems, and fight the climate crisis.

Women in Food Agriculture Mentorship Program

The Women in Food Agriculture (WFA) Mentorship Program is now accepting applications for 2022!

Along with our supporting partner, Alltech, we are building on the success of the 2021 program to continue our support of women in ag, promote a more equitable workplace environment and further cultivate the WFA community.

WFA and Alltech invite you to join other professionals from around the world as we connect women across the agri-food industry with mentors to champion their career success and help shape the next generation of leaders in the industry. The mentorship program facilitates meaningful conversations and mutual support while providing a valuable networking experience.

 

 

How will it work?

We are accepting applications for mentors and mentees until 31st January 2022. You are invited to submit your application to become a mentor or be mentored – or both!

Matchmaking will take place in February and you will receive information about your counterpart once all pairings have been arranged. Your first virtual meeting and introductory sessions will be conducted in March.

We provide suggestions and guidance for conducting your monthly mentorship sessions.

In fact, you’ll benefit from WFA support and coaching for a year to make the most of this experience! Quarterly discussion sessions and roundtables offer another opportunity to engage with the wider group of participants and receive support throughout the mentorship program.

Please bear in mind that we have limited capacity in our virtual meeting platform, so we might not be able to match everyone during this round.

We hope the pairing will also get to meet at our 2022 WFA event when we can go back to face to face large scale meetings.
