In: Urban Agriculture Magazine no 35 - Youth in Food: Opportunities for education and employment, p.8-10 (2018)

In this article we discuss dynamics of Sub-Saharan Africa's agriculture sector, challenges faced by entrepreneurs and efforts made to improve opportunities for youth. By highlighting two case studies – a context-sensitive SME (small to medium-sized enterprises) development programme in Liberia and an innovative approach that optimises education in agriculture for youth in Mali – we outline promising approaches for spurring job creation for youth in agriculture.
