In recent years, individuals and organisations have been advocating more strongly for the increased engagement of African youth in agriculture. With an ageing farming population, high youth unemployment and development of innovations in the sector, agriculture could potentially provide greater employment opportunities for young people. However, in order to encourage more youth to be actively engaged in the sector, agriculture has to be made more attractive, and stories of young people successfully participating along the agricultural value chain need to be valorised and shared.
