Knowledge Management, Digitalization, and Youth Entrepreneurship

Practitioners have asserted that Knowledge is at the heart of sustainable development. It is an essential resource for any citizen, organisation, or company, public body, government, and the United Nations in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Digitalization is at the foundation of a Knowledge economy and the youth are key drivers of the business of knowledge utilization for increased productivity. On the other hand, multi-stakeholder cooperation at the local and global levels is vital to developing a prosperous, sustainable, peaceful, and inclusive knowledge society. Future challenges can be met only by sharing knowledge, experiences, and ideas in a fair and trustful partnership. Knowledge Management, Digitalization, and Youth Entrepreneurship have become very critical elements within the agricultural, agribusiness, and science stakeholders (governments, private sector, NGOs & civil society, researchers, regional and global actors) wishing to formulate and implement actions to develop the sector sustainably. In all cases, limited utilization of KM, and digital technologies, especially led by young entrepreneurs, are a major constraint to doubling production and productivity by 2025.

The Knowledge Management, Digitalization, and Youth Entrepreneurship thematic area of the 8th Africa Agribusiness and Science Week will bring together stakeholders within the ecosystem to engage, connect, learn, share and create opportunities with the youth in focus. It will advance the discussion of the business in knowledge and will seek to explore the establishment of an African Knowledge Fund for agriculture and agribusiness in Africa in a coherent manner. The progress to be derived through the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) will be accelerated if these three drivers are optimally engaged and profitably utilized.
