Activity:
Youth Business Units have been set up for organic virgin coconut oil and vanilla, as part of a sustainable livelihoods programme. Young people are also guided through the process of meeting organic standards in their work, as part of preparations for certification. The congress uses these activities as a means of supporting youth to improve their livelihoods.
