FAO encourages investing in rural development and agriculture


JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA (ADV) – Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has urged African governments to invest in rural development and agriculture as this offers rural youth an alternative to migration.

Working in over 130 countries worldwide and with over 94 member states, FAO is a specialised agency of United Nations that leads international efforts to defeat hunger. Its goal is to achieve food security for all and make sure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives.

FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva stated that investing in rural areas and agriculture is crucial to achieve prosperity in Africa and to guarantee the continent’s young people an alternative to migration.“In Africa, we need to invest in rural development aimed at creating jobs and opportunities for young people to remain in rural areas” said Da Silva speaking recently at the high level EU-African Alliance in Agriculture event which is part of this week’s Global in Berlin. “We need youth for modern agriculture,” he emphasised.
