First he mentioned the need to make farms profitable, business-like and therefore more attractive to youth interested in higher income and decent jobs. Also, it is important to support organisations that can help carry the youth’ messages to the higher political levels, giving them voice and making them relevant. Especially in the agricultural sector, there is currently a mismatch between the skills needed by the sector and the skills youth is obtaining. So vocational trainings, mentoring programs, incubation farms and peer-to-peer exchange can help close this gap and increase the chances of finding a job in the agricultural sector. National political will should be translated into targeted actions that support the close links between rural and (peri-)urban areas, ensuring access to services, finance and education.
