About the policy dialogue

This African Policy Dialogue (APD) aims to generate and share evidence on opportunities, sources of productive and decent employment, and effective strategies to promote job creation along strategic AGI value chains. It will also look at whether those who have returned from abroad can easily be absorbed into AGI value chains, using the skills and transferring the know-how they have attained. To increase policy debates and evidence uptake for the enhancement of productive and decent jobs for sustainable AGI value chains, the evidence from this APD will be geared towards influencing the  implementation and revision of the 2011 National Employment Policy.

Objectives
  • To influence policies and policy processes related to productive and decent employment for youth and women along AGI value chains
  • To promote and create awareness on the use of the AGI value chain approach as a means of creating productive and decent jobs
  • To generate evidence on the externalization of labour to understand the implications of labour externalization on the AGI value chain agenda
