The Role of Youth in the Rural Development in the Western Balkans

38
Regional Expert Advisory Working Group (REAWG) on Rural Youth organized in the scope of the Agricultural Policy Forum (APF) 2022 entitled “Agriculture and Rural Development in the context of the Green Agenda for the Western Balkans: Overcoming the Impact of the Global Challenges”.

The APF 2022 recognizes the importance and underutilized potential of the Rural Youth for development in rural areas. Massive rural outmigration has been occurring, especially among the rural youth population. In that context, the Forum strongly encourages the creation and implementation of policies that support rural youth to become more visible as agents of change in the agri-food systems as well as enhance their contribution to the sustainability of rural areas and rural development in the WBs.
