Are there enough job opportunities for youth in Africa’s agricultural sector?  What political processes are needed to promote productive employment? Does the ICT sector have as much potential for Africa as we like to think? How can we effectively stimulate young and female entrepreneurs in developing countries?

These and other important questions will take central stage during the round table discussion organized by INCLUDE on December 15th, 2016.

You are warmly invited to join this interactive meeting and take stock of the INCLUDE knowledge with our numerous international researchers; discuss issues of productive employment with our platform members, including Lemma Senbet of the African Economic Research Consortium (AERC) and Sarah Ssewanyana of the Economic Policy Research Centre (EPRC); and engage in a thought-provoking debate with external experts like Louise Shaxon (ODI & DEGRP), Martha Melesse (IDRC) and Ifediora Chimezie Amobi (Executive Director of the African Heritage Institution and former economic advisor to Goodluck Jonathan).
