Taking courses on agribusiness and agri-entrepreneurship is crucial in understanding the intricate interaction between agriculture and commerce for fostering sustainable practices that ensure food security. These courses equip individuals with the skills to navigate modern agricultural challenges, optimize resource utilization, and contribute to rural economies’ growth. Ultimately, they empower professionals to innovate and lead in a dynamic and vital sector that impacts both global markets and local communities. Hence, Fairtrade NAPP has organized an E-Learning Course on Agribusiness and agri-entrepreneurship under the Youth Knowledge Hub Project. The course was a part of the E-learning curriculum under the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations E-Learning Academy.

The objective of the course was to equip young individuals with indispensable skills and expertise for success in the agricultural sector. The curriculum was meticulously designed to offer holistic perspectives on agribusiness, entrepreneurship, and sustainable-friendly farming techniques. A cohort of 15 motivated youths actively participated in the course while demonstrating their commitment by proficiently completing all modules and assignments. Furthermore, the course brought global expertise and valuable resources that facilitated the utilization of top-tier educational materials. This helped in enriching the participants’ learning experience. After successfully meeting all course prerequisites, every attendee was granted a duly earned “Certificate of Achievement” issued by the FAO E-Learning Academy.

Accomplishing this course marks another significant achievement within the framework of the Youth Knowledge Hub Project (YKHP). This strengthens the capacity-building of young individuals engaged in agriculture. The acquired expertise gained by the participants will play a pivotal role in fostering the advancement and evolution of the agribusiness domain.
