Agribusiness and entrepreneurship are two critical areas which have a strong potential to increase employment opportunities for youth and to boost economies in African, Caribbean and Pacific countries. Similarly, the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) is modernising the agricultural sector and providing more opportunities for youth. In particular, young farmers who apply ICT tools and skills to their farming businesses generally have higher yields, incomes and social status.

How can these trends be sustained? What inclusive employment strategies can effectively be put in place? How can we bring more youth into agricultural entrepreneurship? These and other questions prioritising young people's needs will be debated at the upcoming Youth Agribusiness, Leadership, and Entrepreneurship Summit on Innovation (YALESI), set to take place in Dakar, Senegal, from 29 until 31 March 2016.
