Join us! YPARD/AGRINATURA pre-conference workshop at Tropentag 2019

Each year YPARD partakes in the annual interdisciplinary conference on research in tropical and subtropical agriculture, natural resource management and rural development “Tropentag” with an interactive workshop.

This year Tropentag will be organized by the Universities of Kassel and Goettingen, Germany and will be held from the 18 – 20th of September 2019. Students, doctoral students, scientists, extension workers, decision-makers, politicians and practical farmers, interested and engaged in agricultural research and rural development in transition and developing countries will gather to share their knowledge on the conference theme “Filling gaps and removing traps for sustainable resources management”.

Are you going to be present at Tropentag? Come and join us!!

YPARD in collaboration with AGRINATURA will conduct a workshop on “Supporting youth in agriculture and research: Role of youth-based organisations” during the pre-conference workshop sessions at Tropentag.

The workshop will explore with students, researchers, young agricultural professionals, and other stakeholders what actions can the youth take to contribute to the improvement of the agricultural sector for future generations and how YPARD and AGRINATURA can contribute more in this issue. Youth will be the central vision as present and future agents and beneficiaries, the other participants will play the role of supporting partners as a source of inputs, experience and knowledge sharing.

A highlight of the workshop will be a training on how to publish a scientific paper in agriculture-oriented research: tips for early career researchers.
