Produced under the auspices of the Four Basin Gender Profiles project of the Water, Land and Ecosystems Program of CGIAR, this¬†film follows a group of ten youth innovators, mentored by Dr Alan Nicol from the International Water Management Institute, as they devise a solution to landscapes challenges to be pitched to a panel of judges in a¬†Dragon’s Den style event¬†at the Global Landscapes Forum at COP21 in Paris, December 2015.
The team worked specifically on a Land Restoration Challenge task, based on the output of¬†Four Basin Gender Profiles¬†Phase One gender mapping in the Nile Basin.¬†The event is hosted by the¬†Youth in Landscapes Initiative, with coordination by the Water, Land and¬†Ecosystems Program¬†of CGIAR.
The Youth in Landscapes Initiative is a partnership between the International Forestry Students’ Association (IFSA), Young Professionals for Agricultural Development (YPARD) and the Global AgroEcology Alliance (GAEA). For more information, please visit¬†landscapes.org/youth
