Investing in rural youth in the Asia and the Pacific region

This study characterizes the structural and rural transformation of the Asia and the Pacific region, highlighting the implications for rural youth opportunities and challenges and identifying and elaborating on the characteristics, opportunities and challenges related to rural youth inclusion.

Rural youth in countries with low structural transformation and low rural transformation continue to rely on agriculture for employment; in countries with high levels of transformation, a majority of rural youth are now employed outside agriculture.
