Youth Employment in Mali

Generating job opportunities to strengthen resilience of rural young populations

In Mali, 40 percent of the population is aged between 15 and 40 and youth unemployment rates are extremely high in the rural areas which represents a clear threat to social cohesion and food security within the communities. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is working with the Ministry of Agriculture to implement Youth at Work: Reducing Rural Poverty (2014-2016), a programme which aims at generating attractive and decent job opportunities for rural youth with a specific attention to girls and young women, a key contribution to strengthening resilience for food security and nutrition and reducing rural poverty in Mali.
