Unemployment and Agriculture

by Developed Africa 1. July 2014 09:00

Following on from a blog last week regarding the importance of support for farmers and agriculture across Africa, we look at how agriculture could decrease unemployment on the continent.

Somehow, despite the fact their are unprecedented levels of unemployment, and specifically youth unemployment, across the continent of Africa, there currently seems to be a disinclination by the Africa's youth to work in agriculture. Seeing it as dirty, hard work, it is not a sector that gains a lot of attention from the youth population. 

Unless the younger generation ventures more into agribusiness, Africa may not be able to meet up with the demand of feeding its growing population and achieving food security by the year 2025."
