Africa has the youngest population in the world. By 2055, the continent’s youth population (aged 15-24), is expected to be more than double the 2015 total of 226 million. (UNDP)
There is a global campaign to urge the production of more food to make up for the deficit as population increase. We can admit that the youth holds the key to food security in Africa and globally.
We would like your thoughts on the matters concerning the low interest of youth in Agriculture in Africa.
1. Do you agree the youth are the key to food security in Africa?
2. What do you believe are the factors that make agriculture unattractive to the youth in Africa?
3. How do you think we can revive the interest of Africa’s youth in Agriculture?
