The Youth 4 Rights Infobrief, published by the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) and the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL), is the first such publication highlighting youth leadership on rights. It is meant to put a spotlight on some of the remarkable work being done by young people around the world on land tenure, community rights, gender equality, on the intersection of traditional knowledge and development, and many other topics related to rights and landscapes.
This edition will focus on a project that addresses diverse dimensions of rights and sustainable development. Ph.D. candidate Federico Andreotti’s research aims to create mechanisms to help farmers in Peru take ownership over the agricultural genetic resources that are the foundation of their livelihoods.
This outstanding young researcher will discuss his background, his project and how it might be upscaled, as well as challenges that he has faced. You will also find his tips for other young people who feel inspired to develop their own projects.
This story is only the beginning of a Youth4Rights infobrief series, which will feature the work of other aspiring youth leaders.
