Abstract

Over the last decade, several initiatives have focused on supporting youth employment in the African dairy sector. Some with success, some without. What can we learn from these initiatives? What were the challenges encountered? What have been successful strategies to increase youth involvement in the dairy sector? Work-ing with youth groups, mainstreaming entrepreneurial skills, digitisation and establishing strong links with cooperatives have shown to be effective to engage youth in this prospective sector.
