Abstract This paper focuses on developing and emerging economy regions of the world, providing an overview of trends in small-scale farming and agrifood markets, demographic changes and trends in employment – particularly that of youth. It reflects on the aspirations of rural youth and identifies some of the drivers and innovations that have engaged youth in agriculture – and which might help to inform and shape the future. It identifies some emerging policy implications that address small-scale farming and youth in an era of rapid change, including knowledge gaps which, if filled, could better inform the debate on the future of small-scale agriculture and on who will be the next generation of farmers.
