    Policy development
    This ambitious action, in partnership with the Department of Continuing Professional Training of the government of New Caledonia, is at the crossroads between employment of young and vulnerable persons, limiting rural exodus, climate resilience and food self-sufficiency. The goal of this action was to elaborate a need-based strategy to support agroecological value-chains, by encouraging traditional know-how and acquired skills of members of the Kanak communities and leveraging on traineeship opportunities for women and youth. Experts from Belgium and France produced a thorough diagnosis of the governance of the agroecological sector, a mapping of ongoing green economy projects in place, an action plan to promote green jobs, and a skills reference system for young rural workers to have better access to trainings in agroecology.
