The IGP Steering Committee procured the services of the Institute for Futures Research at the University of Stellenbosch Business School to explore the future of work in the agricultural sector of South Africa.
The scope of work included:
- considering what the future of work in agriculture could look like;
- considering the skills barrier that could prevent the absorption of workers into the agricultural sector in the future; and
- the geographical areas where initiatives should be considered to have the maximum impact in future.
The report provides some guidance on how these issues can be addressed.
Please find attached hereto, the “Futures of Agricultural Employment in South Africa 2035 Report”.
