AYIAC aimed at addressing the challenges faced by African youth in the agricultural sector. This conference marks a significant collaboration between stakeholders in agriculture, youth empowerment organisations, and governmental bodies to create a platform for African youth to engage, learn, and contribute to the development of sustainable agriculture in Africa.


AYIAC aims to bring together young people from across Africa who are interested in agriculture and provide them with a platform to exchange knowledge, share experiences, and explore innovative solutions to the challenges facing the agricultural sector on the continent.
