Youth sustaining family farming through ICTs
This report (PDF) is the result of an e-debate of three weeks on “Youth sustaining family farming through ICTs”, organised by the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA), in collaboration with the African Youth Foundation (AYF), in October 2014. The debate aimed at discussing the involvement of youth in family farming, opportunities and challenges faced, as well as exploring how ICTs can strengthen their engagement in family farming. It generated over 150 contributions from more than 20 countries from Africa, the Caribbean and Europe. The report includes a list of initiatives shared by youth and organisations supporting youth in agriculture. A key message is that engaging youth in family farming will require stronger focus on agribusiness and relevant ICTs.
