After taking some time for restructuring and reorganizing itself, YPARD is back with its newsletter, covering some of the many activities that took place between September 2019 and May 2020. From now on, you can expect to receive these bulletins monthly. We hope you enjoy the reading!
There is no question the current global food system is under ever-growing pressure which means meeting the foundation SDGs - SDG 1 and 2 on poverty and hunger - are challenged. YPARD and GFRAS believe that combining efforts can yield better results. While both organizations will continue to serve their constituencies - respectively extensionists in rural advisory services (RAS), and young professionals in all areas of agriculture - combining efforts at the global level will enhance their ability to address global food security issues and work towards the SDGs.
