Female Agricultural Entrepreneurship – Interview with Dorienne Rowan-Campbell at the EDD 2016


Interview with Dorienne Rowan-Campbell
Farmer, Rowan’s Royale Organic Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee (and) Policy Chair Jamaica Organic Agriculture Movement

On 15-16 June, ECDPM staff actively participated in the 10th edition of the European Development Days organized by the European Commission in Brussels, which focused on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Various ECDPM staff members acted as panelist or moderator, while others interviewed speakers, such as Dorienne Rowan-Campell, organic farmer and policy chair of the Jamaica Organic Movement.

In this video, Mrs. Rowan-Campell calls for a policy shift, to recognize women, specifically female agricultural entrepreneurs, as change agents with an important role to play in the pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), rather than as recipients of SDG efforts.
