Business Leadership for Youth in Agripreneurship in Central Africa

This will play a critical role in addressing a range challenges among them unemployment, poverty and inequality. This is important especially given the understanding that agriculture sector is currently the largest employer, accounting for about 43% of total employment in Africa, with huge future potentials to provide productive employment and entrepreneurial opportunities especially in the rural areas. The need to strengthen youth in agriculture is further necessitated by the growing un-employment, partly attributed to fast growing youth population in the region. The demographic trends indicate that 60% of the world’s labor force growth between 2010 and 2050 will be in Africa – a continent whose 60% of the population is currently is below 25 years old.
