The paper is a part of Policy Brief Series published by FANRAPAN, dated on April 2012, as an Issue2: Volume XII. It offers key messages, best practice examples and the recommendations on the topic. 'For Africa to achieve food security, the youth must be regarded as critical agricultural players who need and deserve special attention, support and follow-up. With their energy, passion and talents, they can help to solve many of the serious problems that Africa faces today. But first the youth must be given the tools that they need to drive Africa’s green revolution while also safeguarding the continent’s natural resources and the environment. The youth need to be part of decisions and policy-making processes for agriculture in Africa because they are the generation that will have to ensure that the continent’s growing population is fed.'
