In April 2017, CTA will be launching a new handbook and organising events as part of the African Agripreneurs Youth Forum (AYA Forum) in Ibadan, Nigeria. The Forum will enable young agripreneurs from across Africa to showcase their success stories and connect with business and development organisations. The aim is to scale up the impact of individual activities, and show that, with greater access to enterprise support, youth can become a transforming force in African agriculture.
