YPARD is proud to share its YPARD 2012 report. This was a year of growth for YPARD where it made its mark in agricultural research for development.
The strong showing by YPARD at the GCARD2 demonstrated to the international community that youth can have a strong voice and be an integral part of international events and proceedings and that they have a valid role to play.
Local representatives established themselves and YPARD reached out to YPs on the ground, throughout the world. The network has matured, as well as its activities and its plan for the future is ambitious.
YPARD expanded to create a new region in YPARD Europe and also had a YPARD representative in place on the Steering Committee of the European Forum for Agricultural Research for Development (EFARD).
