If young people and women are given a platform, they can do more for agricultural research for development (AR4D).

Young Professionals in Agricultural Research for Development (YPARD) is an international movement that operates as a network of young people working in the agricultural sector. It is not a formalized institution, but rather it is a global on-line and off-line communication and discussion platform meant to enable young professionals all over the world to express their ideas and realize their full potential towards a dynamic AR4D landscape.

    This is good, atleast it will give youths a sense of leadership

    Getting the youths and women into research for agriculture is a great idea but I think it will be very difficult to realize in most developing countries like ours (Nigeria) because research basically involve time, mental and material resources as well as conducive psychological environment. women and youth in these areas have basic challenges(food, shelter and sometimes clothing) that requires immediate attention to solve than to venture into research that will take their time and resources without guaranteed economic benefit and outcome. it is a natural thing.
