Abstract: Sustainable development and agricultural production represent intensively explored issues in many ways today. Their importance has been rising because of growing global problems and population. This is in particular the case of the global South – poorer, less developed – countries with weaker economies. In this respect, the concept of sustainable agriculture and its implementation in practice has becoming important. The goal of this paper is to present the need for implementation of sustainable agricultural practices in the global South countries, but mainly to examine the current perspectives of sustainable agriculture in Kenya, as a selected developing country, fighting with many problems of global nature. It is a country where about 35 percent of population are in age from 15 to 34 years, and where is a big need for effective sustainable agriculture practices. But to do so there is also a need to support young people in the field of farming. The article will then present the level of this supports from the government and in the context of international development through various mechanisms. In the end we will present the current status in analysed areas and a broader view on the examined issues.

Keywords: Sustainable development, sustainable agriculture, global South countries, sustainable agricultural production in Kenya, support of young Kenyan farmers
