Through targeted actions to rural youth, we aim to improve the situation of young women and men by supporting their aspirations and by helping them enhancing their livelihoods and improving their subsistence strategies. Our Rural Youth Entrepreneurship programme promotes innovations that enable youth to increase their knowledge, access assets and make their living in rural areas. For development practitioners working with rural youth, our Programme offers straightforward guidance on how to get tangible results. During 2012 we trained some 630 young rural entrepreneurs in Latin America and the Caribbean, and worked closely with several governments to include rural youth issues in public policies.
