Youth Employment/Entrepreneurship

With 62% of Africa’s population being under 25 years of age, youth employment is crucial.

Early findings show that the productivity of youth labor (and rural labor in general) employed in both farming and non-farming sectors is significantly influenced by local farmland distribution patterns. Strategies that effectively improve productivity and profitability of farming are critical to expanding employment opportunities and improving youth livelihoods.
