Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum)

One of the pathways to ensuring the long-term impact of youth-specific CD initiatives in Africa is to effectively consolidate on the achievements of current CD programmes, and striking strategic alliances with regional/international partners to continually upgrade youth’s capacity to harness the enormous potential of ICT, especially access to high-speed digital services in benefiting from the huge agribusiness opportunities on the continent. One of the recent global CD-financing frameworks in this regards is the G20 Compact with Africa (CWA)'s initiave which is G20-Africa coordinated and concerted efforts on capacity development cooperation towards launching the G20 Initiative for Rural Youth Employment, and contributing to creating 1.1 million new jobs by 2022 and to providing innovative skills development programmes for at least 5 million young people over the next five years.
