    6. 6. www.fanrpan.orgFood, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) Overview of South African Agriculture Sector • RSA Economy highly diversified - Agric contribution – R66billion industry = 2.3% to GDP, down from 15% in the 1950s & = 7% to formal employment. • With its linkages into agro-industrial sector - contribute about 12% of GDP. • Primary agriculture contributes 5% to formal employment is about • Agriculture has strong backward and forward linkages into the economy.
    7. 7. www.fanrpan.orgFood, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) Overview Of Agricultural Sector Cont... • Dual agricultural economy – Commercialised & Subsistence • Distribution of agricultural production – RSA has 2.76 million hectares of cultivated land, – The main agricultural activities are crop production, mixed farming, cattle ranching and sheep farming, dairy farming, game ranching, aquaculture, beekeeping, and winemaking (GCIS, 2010). – About 4 million are engaged in agriculture for “own consumption” – Estimated 35,000 large-scale CF - own farms with an average size of 2,500 hectares. About 82 million hectares of land was owned by 60 000 white farm divisions (Levin and Weiner, 2006: 39) – A second category of farmers - 200,000 black farmers – Estimated 13 million live in Rural areas – Employment - Employment - average age of a farmer is 62 years, younger generation less interested in farming

    9. 9. www.fanrpan.orgFood, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) Youth Demographic Profile cont.… • South Africa's population = 53.7 % urban and 46.3 % rural • 50 % of the total population is below the age of 25 (20.3 % is below the age of 10) • South Africa has around 10 mil children, 75% of which live in the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Limpopo. Over 48% of youth live in household that have reported hunger. • Census 2011 - Total Population = 51 Million • 9.6-million aged 15-19 years • 10.4-million aged 20 & 24 • Age – 18-35 years - not a homogenous group e.g. School going youth, Out- of-school youth, Unemployed youth, Rural & Urban etc. • Global figures – 9 billion, 60% of arable land found in Africa, 200 Million youth SSA, 60% employed in agric
    10. 10. www.fanrpan.orgFood, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) Policies as Drivers for Youth Engagement and Development 18 years democracy -piloting of policies to deal with legacy of apartheid i.e Poverty, Unemployment & widening Inequalities. • Post apartheid period saw development of three prominent initiatives to attract youth into the agricultural value chain were introduced: 1. Agriculture Youth Development Initiative for SA (1998), 2. YARD 2008 3. Land Affairs YES of 2008. Nothing much of these initiatives can be traced because of lack of coordinated efforts to plan, implement & monitor & evaluate progress • NYDA, National Policy & IYDS provides for a paradigm shift – Integrated Youth Dev Approach, with Youth Agency being the custodian of youth mainstreaming and development in all sectors. • NYDA ACT, supported by National Youth Policy 2009-2014 and NYDA Youth Empowerment Strategy of 2011 make it a policy matter for government departments & institutions to mainstream youth development e.g. Youth Units/Directorate, Youth Development Index etc.
    11. 11. www.fanrpan.orgFood, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) SOME Macro-Agricultural Related Policies & their link to youth • New Growth Path 0f 2010 - provides for key strategic sectors for public investment in the next decade, agric & agro-processing included & youth are set to play a major role in the value-chain. See IYDS 2011. • Comprehensive Rural Development Programme (CRDP 2009) – Funded Programme - Household & ward level based interventions (wards) - coordination & joint planning of the 3 spheres of government – youth listed as a target beneficiary • CASP, August 2004 - On farm and off farm SUPPORT i.e. basic infrastructure; business training and planning (entrepreneurship), targeting LRAD Beneficiaries – Youth Data on beneficiaries of this programme is not readily available – see Annexure on CAYC Database • Land Redistribution for Agriculture Development (LRAD) - stated purpose - 30% of productive agricultural land from white to blacks by 2014 based on a failed strategy of “Willing Seller Willing Buyer” (Replaced by “Fair & Equitable” Principle) -No data showing youth benefiting as a targeted beneficiaries Policies as Drivers for Youth Engagement and Development cont…..
    12. 12. www.fanrpan.orgFood, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) SOME Macro-Agricultural Related Policies & their link to youth • Land and Agrarian Reform Project (LARP); February 2007 - Redistribute 5M hectares to 10 000 new agricultural producers- increasing Black entrepreneurs in agribusiness industry by 10 %. Increase agric production by 10-15% for the target groups, under the LETSEMA-ILIMA Campaign2. Women and youth as priority beneficiaries • AgriBEE Charter of adopted in 2008 - increasing the extent to which youth own & manage agricultural enterprises, increasing their access to economic activities, infrastructure & skills training; • War on Poverty (2008) - Women and youth as priority beneficiaries Policies as Drivers for Youth Engagement and Development cont…..
    13. 13. www.fanrpan.orgFood, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) Youth Perceptions VS Realities of Agriculture • Current realities • Political Transformation in Africa, Youth bulge in the SSA, climate change, global rising food prices, food crisis, global demand for agric land, demand for bio-fuel, renewed policy attention and other emerging opportunities. • The majority of youth seem to have a negative attitude towards agric. As one youth put it, “If you look at the conditions of farmers, there is no way you can be attracted to be a farmer”. • Lack of information, lack of visible change from subsistence rural farming into commercial viable farming initiatives with clear support as some of the factors
    14. 14. www.fanrpan.orgFood, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) Youth Perceptions VS Realities of Agriculture • Different views • Rural-based youth perceptions - a result of lack of enabling environment and incentivised support as more important factor, • Urban-based youth see it as alienating from youth popular culture, old- fashioned and of low status, offering little opportunity for making money &only reserved for the elderly and the poor in rural areas. • Growing Perceptions that Government is failing particularly among the politically inclined youth – 30% LRAD target by 2014 • Agriculture is regarded as an employer of the last resort to young people. (Juma, 2007:2) • As a result South African youth are attracted by the possibilities of well- paid work in the towns and cities rather than farming;
    15. 15. www.fanrpan.orgFood, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) Mainstreaming of Youth Develop Within AFASA Who is AFASA • AFASA is non-profit organisation whose vision is to create “competent and successful commercial African farmers of South Africa”. The organisation was established in April 2011, with intent to be a united body of African farmers. •At the 1st Annual General Meeting, AFASA passed a resolution to establish youth, women and communal land desks •AFASA convened a Women & Youth Planning Commission in February 2013 which outlined a framework of issues to be focused on: - How to capacitate youth to be future leaders in agriculture - Support mechanisms that are required to ensure meaningful and maximum participation of youth in agribusiness - Opportunities for youth in the agricultural sector
    16. 16. www.fanrpan.orgFood, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) What are the key Challenges Facing AFASA Youth Target market? • Targeted Beneficiaries: Agripreneurs, small-scale farmers preferably in a form of cooperatives, young people from farming families, Young Agri-Workers, Land reform and CASP young beneficiaries, 2012 CAYC-CTA-FANRPAN Regional case studies, Africa Progress Panel Report 2012, – Negative attitude towards agric. As one youth put it, “If you look at the conditions of farmers, there is no way you can be attracted to be a farmer”. (FANRPAN 2012)  Minimal participation in policy, strategy, programme and implementations, M&E Systems  Limited Access to information regarding opportunities across value chains i.e. how to start, grow & sustain agricultural enterprise – BDS, Funding,  Limited Access to Technology, Markets, Land, Limited Access to technical Skills, experience & Capacity Building  Lack of proper re-productive infrastructures that makes it easy to do business Mainstreaming of Youth Develop within AFASA....
    17. 17. www.fanrpan.orgFood, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) OPPORTUNITIES ACROSS THE VALUE CHAINS • Value Chains – forward & backward Linkages • Draft Report of National Consultative Commission listed several value chains which are equally identified in the Gauteng Agro-processing strategy: • Centres of information (e.g. Youth desk at head office; Call centre), Post-harvest contractors, Auctioneering/marketing agencies, Agricultural logistics, Media coverage, TransporT, Supply schools etc. as coops. • Continuous Growth and Access to ICT tools, Thriving Entrepreneurship Culture (INNOVATION & Produc Dev), Massive infrastructural development, particularly in the rural and semi-rural areas – Fertilizer and agrochemicals (e.g., pesticides, compost making); • Cereals (e.g., maize); Pulses (e.g., beans, soya beans) • Horticulture (e.g., fruits, vegetables, spices, chilies, mushrooms); Flowers (domestic and export market) • Sugarcane, Cotton / Textile; Oil crops (e.g., sunflower), Nuts (e.g., groundnuts), Tobacco, Emerging crops (e.g., aloe, vanilla) • Dairy (milk, cheese, yoghurt, biogas) – cattle and goats, Meat (beef), Sheep and goats, Fisheries (e.g., aquaculture) • Poultry (e.g., eggs, chicken), Bee-keeping (honey) Hides/skins – leather • Emerging livestock (e.g., wild birds)
    18. 18. www.fanrpan.orgFood, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) Policy ISSUES & Emerging Global Trends such as • SSA Population growth with the rise of Middle Class creates more nutritious commodity demands; ICT, Biofuel, Smart Agriculture • Arability of African land 60% of world’s arable found in Africa, yet we currently explore only 15% of Africa’s Arable land • Education, Training & Skills Development - Exciting careers in agriculture http://www.nda.agric.za/doaDev/sideMenu/links/Digest8.htm • CAADP - Increased Public Spending on Agriculture with a complimentary Multi Donor Trust Funds by G8 • YPARD • Ongoing Political stability, Increased Regional Cooperation – Infrastructure, Agriculture, Peace and Security • FAO, ILO, CAADP, African Youth Charter, BRICS, Integrated Youth Development Strategy (IYDS 2011), On-going national and regional infrastructural Opportunities
