Where do rural youth live and how do they engage with the economy? How can young rural women be empowered? How can rural youth prosper in changing agrifood systems? What makes climate change a youth issue? The IFAD Rural Development Report 2019 analyses key challenges of the rural transformation process and opportunities available to rural youth while encouraging thinking differently about investing in rural youth. “Neither rural development policies and investments nor youth-specific interventions can be effective in ensuring the inclusion of the young population unless they are considered as a part of broader development efforts. An effective approach to rural youth policy and investment is therefore one that strikes the right balance between creating broader rural opportunities and fostering youth-specific ones”, conclude the authors.
