Rural youth in dryland areas: their realities and aspirations

In 2015-2016, a team of researchers conducted in-depth interviews with over 100 young men and women living in the rural dryland area of Midelt, Morocco. The goal was to obtain youth perspectives on the realities, challenges and aspirations of life in drylands and opportunities for making a living off agriculture. In this video, Hamid and Hafida share their story.

This research was conducted under the framework of the CGIAR Research Program on Dryland Systems and funded by the CGIAR Fund Donors, coordinated by Young Professionals for Agricultural Development (YPARD) and the research carried out by Bern University of Applied Sciences; School of Agricultural, Forest and Food Sciences (HAFL) .
