The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is working on a publication that aims at providing a set of solutions to overcome core challenges that rural youth typically face when they (want to) engage in agriculture as a sustainable business, providing them with decent employment. This publication addresses young leaders; young producers; producers’ organizations; youth programme formulators, youth development practitioners and decision-makers influencing youth programme design.

The publication will flag youth-specific solutions which have proved to help overcome a specific challenge. These solutions can take the form of approaches; methods, tools, practices etc. from all over the world and preference will be given to those that have not yet been documented or that have not been shared much.

FAO envisages that this publication will bring fresh ideas on how youth can successfully engage in agriculture and that it will be an informative document for those who want to design and promote youth smart solutions that have worked well in some or many parts of the world.

The format for collection of solutions consists of an online questionnaire. Please click on the link below and answer the questions: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/youth_in_agriculture
