  1. Rural Development Academy 2021

    12 - 23 April 2021

    Decent and sustainable work in the rural economy is essential to achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and its overarching objective of leaving no one behind. Rural areas provide livelihoods and employment for millions of women and men in Africa, in agriculture as well as in rural non-farm activities. Work in rural areas, however, is often characterized by decent work deficits, including governance gaps, informality, underdeveloped production systems and limited access to services, infrastructure and social protection. Some of these deficits have further been exacerbated by the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 edition of the Rural Development Academy will focus on the African region, and will be held virtually using the online learning methods on both self-learning as well as more interactive and participatory methods. This allows for a more in-depth and focussed approach to the topics, as well as wider participation of constituents and stakeholders from the region, as well as those interested in promoting decent work in the rural economy in the African region.
