The Youth Agribusiness Strategy is a sectoral national strategy of Kenya for the period of 2017-2021. Its main objective is to address challenges that hinder youth from participating effectively in the sector.The Strategy also seeks to make agriculture more productive and sustainable. Specifically, it targets to enhance access and sustainable use of land for the youth in agribusiness.Further, in order to enable more inclusive and efficient agricultural and food systems, the following measures are set out: transforming the mindset and perceptions of the youth towards agribusiness; equipping youth with appropriate agribusiness skills, knowledge and information; enhancing access to affordable and youth friendly financial services for agri-preneurship; engaging youth in research, development and utilization of innovative agricultural technologies; enhancing access to factors of production, utilisation of modern technologies and utilisation of Good Agricultural Practices to increase efficiency; increasing utilisation of agricultural products through value addition; improving access to affordable suitable output markets for the youth; and supporting implementation, reviews and development of policies that create an enabling environment for youth in agri-preneurship.Increasing the resilience of livelihoods and disasters is among the objectives of this Strategy. To this end, the document aims to promote youth-inclusive climate smart agricultural technologies and create green jobs for environmental sustainability.Participatory Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting (PM&ER) will be an integral component of this Strategy. Key indicators (process, output and outcome) will be developed and used in monitoring and evaluating the impact. The PM&ER will involve use of baseline data to monitor against indicators and prepare quarterly reports as required. Regular planned assessments of the PM&ER system are required in order to ensure that indicators are measuring what they are meant to, that data are generated according to standards, that data analysis and communication of results give the information needed by decision-makers, and that data management includes an assessment of overall data quality.
