The Role of Youth in Food and Water Systems: 2023 Food and Water Systems Annual Report

Water and food are essential to human life and dignity while healthy ecosystems protect and conserve natural resources that provide and sustain life. CARE commits to work with partners around the world to support 75 million people, most of them women and girls, to fulfill their right to food, water and nutrition as part of Vision 2030. This year, CARE will be highlighting a key and dynamic group in improving access to healthy food and water systems: youth. Through the She Feeds the World framework, CARE promotes a focus on young women and men as positive change agents who bring creativity, energy, commitment, and novel perspectives to understanding and addressing food, economic and social insecurity in their communities. CARE pursues Positive Youth Development strategies, viewing young people as key partners in all development efforts, from nutritional programming to strengthening agricultural markets.

CARE 2023 Annual Report

The global crises we faced in 2023 left us with little time to catch our breath.
