In the framework of the FAO’s project “Building Resilience in the Sahel Region Through Job Creation for Youth”, funded by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) of the Federal Republic of Germany, FAO and ODI have organized an event to showcase findings from a forthcoming report. The publication outlines the challenges and opportunities for addressing youth radicalisation in the Sahel, and furthermore, through the report’s findings and recommendations, the research aims at supporting regional programming focused on enhancing rural economies and youth employment opportunities in multi-layered crises’ contexts.
