This intervention aims at a better preparation of the project. Moreover, the PEJAB's sectoral objective is the creation of wealth through the setting up of youth-led agribusinesses as well as the improvement of food and nutrition security. Specifically, it aims at creating favorable conditions for the creation and management of successful agro-business enterprises by young people and the development of a political framework, organizational and institutional support for the promotion and development of these enterprises.
