Promoting Access to Agricultural Finance for Youth in Developing Countries

A synthesis of lessons and experiences

This publication provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of agricultural financing for youth in developing and emerging countries, underlining the trends, core challenges, opportunities, innovative solutions and initiatives associated with this undertaking.

The study makes use of the latest and most relevant literature on youth finance, while also relying extensively on insights and case studies that have emerged during the development of a series of FAO country-level assessments on the state of agricultural finance for youth.

Building on the analysis of this data and experience, the study aims to provide a range of recommendations and lessons learned that can be leveraged by interested stakeholders to develop new modalities to promote youth access to agricultural finance, in their own specific contexts.
