Youth and farming in Senegal

aubergines1The REVA plan in Senegal aims to encourage young people to return to agriculture. Mohamadou Sall, Future Agricultures Consortium researcher, has led a study into the plan’s impacts, which found that it has helped to change attitudes, introduce more modern techniques and equipment, and open up farmers’ choice of which crops to cultivate.

The study has been covered in the Senegalese media, with a TV report and newspaper article based on a workshop in May 2012 in Senegal.
