YouthPower2: Learning and Evaluation (YP2LE), on behalf of USAID/Bureau for Resilience and Food Security (RFS), is conducting the Youth in Agri-Food Systems Learning Activity to advance knowledge on approaches to, and the state of evidence for, youth inclusion in international development interventions related to agri-food systems. This activity tracks strategies, map pathways, and gauges the state of the evidence for youth contributions to the achievement of country self-reliance through RFS areas of work. As part of the research component of this activity, YP2LE is conducting a Shocks and Stressors Assessment that will identify the shocks and stressors youth in agri-food systems currently feel.
We especially want to understand how youth (aged 18-29) respond to and recover from shocks and other severe stresses, including the COVID-19 pandemic, desert locust infestations and other natural disasters, and conflict. You can help us understand what works and what doesn’t so future programs are more effective for youth. The survey contains 35 questions and should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
