"Youth, the future of cooperative enterprise”

Youth are an asset for agriculture

Youth form a large proportion of the global population. They represent a valuable asset and an important potential labour force for countries in which they constitute the majority of the population. According to UNFPA, there are 1.2 billion adolescents in the world, of which, nine out of ten live in developing countries and 55% reside in rural areas.

Young women and men farmers are the entrepreneurs of tomorrow and can potentially overcome the food security challenge.
