Tracy Abbey Mensah

Young Expert at GNBCC - Ghana
YEP period 2021 - 2023, batch 23

YEP Role

As a Food and Finance Officer in Agrofood, I will focus on initiating an Agrofood community that will contribute to sustainable and inclusive growth in the Agrofood sector. This will contribute to sustainable and inclusive growth in the agro-food sector by exchanging knowledge, connections and exploring partnerships. The community will come together for knowledge-based events and networking activities such as company visits, matchmakings, masterclasses, trade missions, etc. The activities will be adapted to the needs/wishes of the agro-food community itself and will grow over time. Moreover, the agro-food community will involve the Young Expert Program actively by involving the (alumni) YEPers, to keep the community growing and to give new Agrofood YEPers a kick-start into the sector.

This role will enable me to become an expert on the theme of Agrofood, build project management and business development skills, grow a meaningful professional/personal network, and gain in-depth experience with an intercultural way of working.
