Most of us working in agriculture have been aware of the rising average age of farmers, both men and women. There have been efforts over the years to engage younger people in agriculture – some projects successful and others less so. Yet, we do not see a substantial change in youth engagement in the agriculture sector. What has happened to the evaluations of youth in agriculture –related projects? Are there lessons learned that we should be incorporating in all initiatives? What are the pitfalls and challenges? Has anyone done a synthesis of the lessons learned so that we can make a more transformation change for the sector in this regard?
Looking forward to hearing from your experiences,
