While the promotion of sustainable bio-social ecosystems is the driver of the ZYCALA project, improving food and livelihood security is one of the key deliverables.
The Sustainable Business training combined approaches in business planning with the promotion of sustainable practices conserving the environment. Conducted by YEFI, the young participants explored farming as a business concept and how cooperative endeavours could transform their communities economically.
Over two days they explored business principles such as planning and budgeting, financial management, resource mobilization, marketing and record keeping. Engaged youth from 10 demonstration sites strengthen their perception of the linkages between a regionalised food system (SDG 2), strong local economies (SDG 8) and resilient communities. And now ZYCALA youth are even more aware of how to progress with sustainable food opportunities in their region.
