The Lagos State Government has reiterated its irrevocable commitment to driving youth inclusive policies, programs and projects in agriculture, regarding it as the way to ensuring food security whilst combating the twin challenge of unemployment and climate change.

Agriculture is the backbone many economies, averaging 25% or more of GDP in several developing countries and representing a prime opportunity to employ the youth. Considering the ageing population of food producers in the country, with the average age stemmed at 60+, it behoves on the government to drive inclusive strategies that engage the target group in agricultural food production. Lagos is not left behind in this drive, and as such initiated programmes targeted at youth participation in the sector through its Ministry of Agriculture to mitigate some of the challenges identified as preventing the youth from fully engaging in agriculture – most notably lack of financing, land, markets and training.



Some of the programmes initiated by the administration of Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu conceptualised the establishment of the Lagos Agripreneurship Programme (L.A.P.) in year 2020 as a social intervention programme aimed at exposing the youth to agriculture via training utlilizing modern agricultural techniques and practices towards job and wealth creation. The programme aims to train 15,000 youth across four value chains namely poultry, aquaculture, vegetable and piggery within the next 5 years.

The Programme is a four-month training programme that involves one-month intensive on-site demonstration training at the Lagos State Agricultural Training Institute in Araga – Epe (where particpants are trained, accommodated, fed, provided with training materials and safety kits for free by the State government), and a three-month internship phase with select agro-allied companies/farms. Since inception of this programme in 2020, a total number of 3,000 participants have been trained.

The programme is implemented in three phases namely training, internship/ mentorship and linkage to sources of finance.
