Youth representation

YPARD, the Young Professionals’ Platform for Agricultural Research for Development, has been welcomed as a full voting rights member of the EFARD Steering Committee, the European Forum for Agricultural Research for Development.

Thus, YPARD, through Codrin Paveliuc-Olariu, the interim representative of YPARD Europe, will represent the voice of young professionals in the European area, empowering and representing them. Following the principles of GFAR, both YPARD and EFARD try to provide a strategic dialogue between multi-stakeholders in order to improve policies in this area and access to knowledge.
