I feel that YPARD is opening doors for young researchers all over the world. Their access and exchange of information, network and opportunities between global young professionals is crucial for present and future agricultural developments and policies. YPARD as an international knowledge network offers room for young professionals to voice their ideas which otherwise might not have been heard. I met so many interesting people through YPARD, and through their forum and news I stay updated on the latest issues and discussions in the agricultural domain in whatever part of the world!
