The African Development Bank has called for global support for Africa’s young farmers and “agripreneurs”, highlighting how agribusiness is the answer for the continent’s youth. Africa has the world’s youngest population, with 60% under 35 years of age and 420 million youth aged 15-35. “Africa’s next billionaires are not going to come from oil, gas, or the extractives,” they will be in agriculture and related industries, President Adesina told a session titled “Making Farming Cool: Investing in future African farmers and Agripreneurs” at the 2017 World Food Prize Symposium-Borlaug Dialogue in Des Moines, Iowa.
