(Business in Cameroon) - Yaoundé, Cameroon’s capital, is hosting next February 28 to March 3 an international Youth Agro-pastoral Entrepreneurship Summit, co-organized by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the Cameroonian government.

The meeting aims to “foster knowledge sharing with young people and public & private entities to promote efforts towards entrepreneurship, leading to the reduction of rural poverty and improved food and nutrition security,” organizers said. As well, it is an occasion to explore opportunities and possibilities in both agricultural and non-agricultural areas for the promotion of environment friendly and decent jobs.

A field workshop with young people selected during the summit will be held 2-3 March at the Agri-incubation Center of Obala, located an hour's drive from Yaoundé. IFAD believes Cameroon is one of the sub-Saharan African countries where more than 16 million young people will enter the labor market each year until 2030, mainly in rural areas.
