Many thanks to all participants for the very valuable contributions posted so far and many more are certainly to be registered. Issues to be dealt with are very clear and I want to believe that through collaboration/partnerships a lot can be achieved in addressing them, building on/learning from what already works in some parts of the continent and beyond.
Please allow me to share this very informative publication jointly produced by FAO, CTA and IFAD: Youth and Agriculture: Key Challenges and Concrete Solutions http://www.fao.org/3/a-i3947e.pdf
It highlights various challenges (relevant for this Forum's topic and most of which - if not all - have been posted here) and, most importantly, proposes some solutions with replicable success stories. It is a very important guiding material that we can all make good use of and let's also share it widely.
At FAO, we look forward to keep strengthening collaboration with partner-institutions, among which youth organisations, as we take forward this very important agenda for Africa.
