On Employment Opportunities for Albanian Young People in Rural Areas through Sustainable Development of Traditional Farm

Enida Kume


Youth employment is a global challenge. Its complexity is particularly large in the case of young people who live in rural areas. The growth of the agricultural economy in a free market area, tending to an intensification system, reduces work opportunities for young people living in rural areas. Finding a solution that reconciles these two processes in an optimal point is becoming a necessity. The promotion and development of traditional farms is one of the best solutions. Traditional farms that enables this achievement of the added value for all manufacturing as potential sources of biological diversity in animals and plants, nature, environment, water, forests, traditions, ethno culture, etc. These farms generate opportunities for the development of non-agricultural economic activities, which are a real possibility for a constant increase in the rural youth employment level. The Territorial Treaties for Youth Employment is one the most effective tools for rural youth employment, but they must also address the possibilities for the promotion of traditional farms with all the necessary issues. Thus, technical and professional training for young people to cope with the farm work, subsidies, incentives for growth and management of the farms, etc. will be supported.
