The First UNEA Earlier this year I was lucky to get the opportunity to observe the first United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) in Nairobi, as a part of the children and youth major groups and stakeholders. The conference addressed two key overarching themes including the SDGs and the post-2015 Agenda as well as Illegal Trade in Wildlife and Timber. Within these themes, delegates addressed a wider range of sub-themes ranging from sustainable consumption and production,...

As the proverb goes: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. If I were a millionaire I would teach the world how to fish. I use the phrase how to fish metaphorically, we do not need so many fishermen. Poverty is one of the greatest problems of the world. A millionaire alone will not be able to eradicate poverty but the investment in the human race can be a big step in the right direction. Why does poverty exist?...

50 years after independence some counties in Kenya are marginalized and far from mainstream development. Article 204 of the Kenyan constitution provides for an equalization fund of 0.5% of the national budget to cover service provision and infrastructure development in marginalized areas. However, the rift of development between counties in Kenya is still wide, and this begs the question; who is to blame for the cases of insecurity, food insecurity, poverty levels of up to 84%, poo...

Recently, in my country, there has been a campaign geared towards encouraging young people from Kenya and East Africa to embrace farming as a profession under the banner of “farming is cool”. The campaign encompassed using one of Kenyas young and hip celebrity (Juliani) who has a very large following doing a tour and exposing successful farming ventures by other young people. It also involves Amiran (main Sponsors) promoting their merchandise to the audience. I cannot authorita...

What do you think about skills for rural and urban youth? Are they the same? The answer is positively different because it depends on related factors such as the environment of youth, education, technology, and so forth. Here we will elaborate what kind of skills rural youth have. Rural and urban areas have quite the same characteristics. Poverty is sometimes identical with the rural area, predominantly in low and some middle income countries. This stereotype cannot easily be lost becaus...

Agriculture is a very important sector that helps alleviate hunger and poverty. It is also essential for the development of a country, but unfortunately people are using some very poor practices which is destroying our mother earth.

Estimates of the amount of land transformed by humans v...

We all know that it’s the farmers who produce food for all the people. But the irony is that most of the farmers themselves are deprived of food security in many parts of the world. Now let us look at the problems faced by the farmers in the Sangrur district of Punjab which is proudly called as the “Farming heartland of India.” This is a very complex problem, as about 2000 farmers killed themselves in the state of Punjab due to the following reasons: 1. Increasing cost of...

These days, children and youth are not concerned and fully ignore agriculture for one simple reason- it's also about farming. It is so disgusting. So, from this statement, we can guess that agriculture is not an interesting realm to be studied. There is a lack of awareness among children and youth. However, there is an effort to help increase awareness on ascertaining agriculture in detail. A magnitude initiative formed or related ways engaging children and youth such as YUNGA. I was admir...
