Agricultural Transformation in the Near East and North Africa Region and the Challenge of Youth Employment and Migration

This paper analyses the relationship between agriculture transformation and employment in the Near East and North Africa (NENA) region, where unemployment, particularly among the young generation, represents a fundamental challenge. The paper summarizes the origins of the problem and sheds light on policy reforms in agriculture and agroindustry that contribute to the elimination of the rural-urban gap in livelihoods and infrastructure, promote employment and reduce rural outmigration, taking into account the complex interlinkages between migration, agriculture and rural development. A three-pronged approach is proposed aimed at curbing poverty, increasing employment opportunities and ensuring inclusive agricultural transformation.
