The video presents the first achievements of the project “Youth at Work: Reducing rural poverty”, launched by FAO and the Malian Ministry of Agriculture in August 2014. The project is funded by the Africa Solidarity Trust Fund (ASTF) and aims at generating attractive and decent job opportunities for rural youth in Mali, in an effort to increase resilience and strengthen food security. The project is expected to contribute towards the creation of 400 new decent work opportunities and the improvement of 1,000 existing jobs by 2016.
