YPARD Nepal is a chapter of YPARD which is supported by YPARD Asia and Pacific Coordination Unit and YPARD Global Coordination Unit. Since its establishment in 2012, YPARD Nepal has been continuously striving for youth-led agricultural activities in the country through various programs. 

Currently, YPARD Nepal working team consists of a country representative and 13 local representatives- all young professionals are from agricultural universities, research institutes, farming, and development sectors. Storytelling contest for youth agri-entrepreneurship and YPARD student research symposium were our major events in the recent year.
