Employment in Agriculture: Jobs for Africa’s Youth

Default image, no image supplied by the user.As part of IFPRI’s 2012 Global Food Policy Report, this chapter presents the policy challenges associated with the agriculture sector as a source of meaningful jobs to the growing number of young people in Africa. It describes four employment options for youth—(1) youth remaining on family holdings, (2) youth seeking off-farm opportunities, (3) youth establishing new holdings, (4) youth taking on formal or informal on- or off-farm wage work—and  suggests how policymakers can address critical constraints in access to financial services, land, and education and modern skills along those options.
