Project General Description

This project consists of an assistance that is designed to support the Government of the Republic of Guinea in the preparation of the project to support the transformation of the Guinean agriculture, within the entrepreneurship incentive program for young people (PATAG-EAJ). The project provides assistance in the elaboration of the transformation program of the Guinean agriculture, and in the process of formulating a pilot operation for the employment of young people in the agricultural sector. The support program for transformation of the Guinean Agriculture (PATAG) will fit within the National Plan of Agricultural Investment and Food Security 's strategic policies (PNIASA) currently being reviewed, but will develop, in a particular way, the specific actions to make an effective contribution to the transformation of agriculture in involving the private sector. The pilot operation for the employment of young people in the agricultural sector aims to promote the integration of young people in the agricultural sector in a broad sense (18-40 years-old). This operation has been designed to promote the modernization and transformation of the sector, through the different chains of values, by promoting employment among young people, and by limiting rural exodus.
