Under supervision of Mr. Ntiokam Divine, the country representative and his assistant Mr. Ngouambe Nestor, the Young Professionalsí platform for Agricultural Research for Development (YPARD) is being represented in Cameroon at the national level.

These regional consultations were to bring out resolution on which the YPARD-Cameroon at the National level is going base on to come up with strategic plan of action in the forth coming National Forum of YPARD-Cameroon in August 11-12, 2013.
In this like, within a short period of time all the 10 regions were informed of the regional consultations for the 29th of June 2013. A total of Five (05) regions succeeded within their limited time frame to effective seat and discus on the aforementioned issues.
