This highlights the great challenge of youth unemployment, but it could also be seen as a great opportunity to encourage youth to be the engine behind the development of new agricultural enterprises — not just in farming but also in research, processing, packaging, and retailing of food stuffs. These demographic trends have important implications, both positive and negative, for Africa’s social and economic future and, as shown in this report, especially for the agriculture sector.
