Very less work with youth in agriculture....sadly to see youth putting their back in farming in Malaysia. Its the curse of agric., industry
Bart De Bruyne
Why a future in agriculture doesn't seem attractive to youth? If we do not reward farmers more, we might lack labor for agriculture at a certain moment.
Points to consider to attract youth to agriculture:
1) Enforcement to develop agriculture curriculum in education; 2) duty-bearers’ conscientious support in agriculture industry; 3) prioritizing local products over imported/foreign products; business sector willingness to to invest for farmers’ technical capacities

Common problem in developing countries: the government is tied up with bureaucracy in its own system…no real implementation of legislations for agriculture industry in support to UN agreements/declaration… AND: UN agencies should lax their regulations on funding opportunities to give way to NGOs access to financing…Governments are not that interested to implement community-based initiatives like those for the youth
