Fostering Inclusive Rural Transformation. The report which was presented in Abidjan on November 23rd, 2016 by the body in collaboration with the African Development Bank (AfDB), says youth unemployment, insecure land tenure and weak value chains are the main obstacles in the way of ending poverty and inequality in West and Central Africa. It added that youth under the age of 35 account for 75 per cent of the population of the region which also has the highest number of rural youth than any other region in the world, stressing youth empowerment as a precursor to achieving prosperity in the region. Emphasizing the need to attract private investment into agriculture, the report highlighted the importance of the rural non-farm economy, positing that agricultural regulations in Africa, actually deter rather than encourage rural investment. “Reforming the regulations that limit private entry and investment in value chains that serve smallholder farmers must be a priority”, it reads.

The report noted the dynamic nature of food systems, changing rapidly to meet the rising demand and shifting diets of middle-class urban consumers from grains to dairy, fish, meat and vegetables. It also reveals that continued rapid growth of imports shows that there is space for local farmers to grow their businesses if they can produce competitively. Commenting on the report, Vice President of IFAD, Michel Mordasini pointed out that “the lack of social and economic opportunities for the large number of young people in the region is the principal driver of migration”. “By making the right investments – to improve infrastructure, secure land tenure and facilitate their access to finance and training – we can capture the labour and energy of the young generation to transform rural areas into vibrant places to live and work”, he added. Lending credence to the report, IFAD’s Regional Director, West and Central Africa Division, stressed the need for rural transformation as a viable means to fight poverty. “Rural transformation is a powerful way to overcome poverty. We need to develop rural areas in Africa where people are willing to invest, which then will enable them to produce more, to attain a marketable surplus that can be sold at a profit and provide them with the resources to improve their livelihoods and reinvest. First and foremost, this requires infrastructure to make the rural areas easily accessible, not only physical infrastructure, but also IT and banking infrastructure. Rural transformation will provide hope and opportunity to rural youth, young women and men to build their future lives. We have no other choice.” The Rural Development Report 2016: Fostering Inclusive Rural Transformation is a clarion call for policymakers and development practitioners to win the global war against poverty. Laden with detailed analysis of the rural sector, the report gives an understanding of key investments and policy reforms expected to be prioritized, as a means of transforming rural areas in developing countries to the benefit of her young population.
