The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) have developed a joint regional programme titled “Opportunities for Youth in Africa: Accelerating Job Creation and Entrepreneurship in Agriculture and Agribusiness”. The programme is in response to a dedicated call for accelerating efforts in the area of job creation. This call was made during the 2018 Conference on Youth Employment in Agriculture co-organized by the African Union, the Government of Rwanda and FAO, which took place on 20-21 August 2018 in Kigali, Rwanda, with the theme “Youth Employment in Agriculture as a Solid Solution to Ending Hunger and Poverty in Africa: Engaging through Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and Entrepreneurship”.
This brochure frames the OYA programme to align it with the priorities of donors including migration, human security and sustainable transitions. It also gives greater visibility to the programme’s theory of change, objectives and targets of implementation.
