FAO: Job creation within agricultural sector can stimulate African youth employment

22.02.2018 08:02 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) While speaking within a FAO Regional Conference for Africa (Feb 19–23, Khartoum, Sudan), José Graziano da Silva, Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), has said that «countries need to promote a rural and structural transformation that fosters synergies between farm and non-farm activities and that reinforces», UN Radio reports. As to the report, the FAO Regional Conference for Africa primarily focuses on the theme of creating decent and attractive employment within the world «youngest» continent in terms of the average age of its population. As to da Silva, now experts suggest that up to 12 million new jobs must be created every year to absorb new labour market entrants within the next 20 years. Today some 54% of African work force relies on the agricultural sector for livelihoods, income and employment, especially within family farming. As to da Silva, more profitable urban markets can lead to a concentration of food production in large commercial farms, and also the creation of value chains dominated by large processors and retailers. «In this contest, smallholders and family farmers need specific policies and regulations. This includes providing access to inputs, credit and technology and improving land tenure,» he added, stressing how social protection programmes, including cash transfers can link public food purchase to family farmers foods output.
