When it comes to population growth Africa is the worst affected, with more than 60% of its population under the age of 25 and expected to constitute 42% of global youth by the year 2030, with more people, Africa will face bigger challenges inferred by its fast-growing population such as job creation and food production as consumption will go up with more numbers of people being fed.

The agricultural sector has emaged as the world's biggest employer which can ingest most young people in Africa into its value chains, as farmers, producers, processors, distributors, and exporters, but to win on this the World's Agriculture sector need to undergo a significant transformation to attract the young generation and to meet its food production, supply, as well as its consumption target, the total solution on this challange on overcoming these challenges rests on the use of Africa's 60% share of the world's arable land, and the best weather and its vast water resources, in growing its food and much to feed the world, If this is done well Agriculture in Africa will create agrifood aligned businesses that will give jobs to its young generation, and income to the farming communities, as well as provide a solution to solving, the hunger, poverty, and unemployment challenge that it faces today, this shift will not only solve Africa's problems but also assist the world in meeting its food demands. As the world population grows each day, more players are required to venture into the Agrifood production business, this will, In turn, create job opportunities, produce food for everyone, make nutritious food available for everyone using fewer resources, and bring more significant benefits to rural and urban farming communities.
Achieving Africa's agricultural revolution will require the blending of old and new approaches that include technology being added to all things agriculture and extensively coordinated amongst all stakeholders in the agricultural system.

By embracing and applying modern technologies in the use and management of soil, farmers are now gaining more profits and will be able to increase their yield productivity.
The world's agriculture sector needs people like you and me to join hands, take up the challenge of feeding the world's ever-growing population and fight hunger and poverty. FPI has done a lot in bringing farming communities together. To raise resources for its agriculture projects it has established a private company that is involved in the export of different commodities across the world, profits that are realized from these exports are then invested into the FPI-I projects.
