New study sheds light on unlocking the potential of young people in Nigeria’s Agribusiness
The findings from the study reveal results based on age, education, gender; citing these as baseline reasons for lack of uptake of the training provided by the N-Power Agro Program. However, more than half of the study participants received employment or business opportunities which suggests that the N-Power Agro Program has succeeded in influencing youth’s willingness towards agribusiness.
Making agri-business work for women and youth
he Association of International Research and Development Centers for Agriculture (AIRCA) is working to improve agribusiness in the Lake Victoria Basin, Uganda, focusing on women and youth farmers. The work will combine the existing skill sets and experiences of AIRCA members, focusing on technologies relevant to the Basin that can be scaled up and out to achieve real impact in agricultural production and nutrition for the farmers and their families.
