IBRAF and German Agency for International Cooperation to start youth training on the cashew value chain

Brazil Africa Institute and the Competitive Cashew Initiative (ComCashew), a project of the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ), have established a partnership to promote training on the cashew value chain for African young people within one 2018th edition of the Youth Technical Training Program (YTTP).

YTTP is IBRAF’s program focused on training African youth using Brazil’s expertise and the support of international partners. ComCashew Initiative is part of the GIZ program for the promotion of agricultural value chains in Africa.

According to Rita Weidinger, Executive Director of  ComCashew-GIZ, IBRAF and ConCashew will sign a Memorandum of Understanding to formalize the partnership soon.

The President of the Brazil Africa Institute, Professor João Bosco Monte, Rita Weidinger and representatives of the African Cashew Alliance had discussed the strategies during a meeting in Acra, Ghana, this week.

Professor Monte believes “this is an important dialogue not only to promote youth training but also to increase the role of the Triangular Technical Cooperation to achieve African development”.

At the occasion Professor Monte also invited German Agency for International Cooperation to take part on the 6th Brazil Africa Forum on November.
