The need for more radical inclusion

  • AFRICA by 2050 will have the world’s youngest population
  • To ensure food security and the eradication of poverty and hunger, there is the need to take pragmatic measures to implement appropriate    policies and projects aimed at promoting/increasing productivity
  • We are beginning to see increasing interest of the youth in agribusiness
Examples: AGRIPRO’s club activities in University of Ghana, KNUST, Ashesi
University, Central University College, and the University of Cape Coast
