Academicians and experts at an international conference held here on Tuesday at Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) called for developing research-based indigenous mechanism to overcome energy and environment-related-issues.

They also underlined the need of initiating dialogue process at relevant forums and strengthening international collaboration to address socio-economic issues. For sustainable development, environment-related issues much be kept in view, they added.

The conference was a follow-up of 21st UN Climate Change Conference recently held in Paris that was attended by top World leaders including Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

The three-day conference was being attended by around 300 academicians and experts from home and abroad.

AIOU Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Shahid Siddiqui while inaugurating the conference said that the conference was aimed at giving its research-based findings and recommendations to implement the Paris Summit’s declaration. The conference, he said will help to bridge knowledge gap in the development process and properly addressing energy and environmental issues.

The university, he said is actively engaged in construction of knowledge through research-based activities including publication of research journals and holding of research conferences. Eight research journals were issued and three international conferences were arranged during the last one-year. A package of incentives was also given to motivate its faculty members and the students to do research work that is indigenous in nature and linked with the socio-economic problems of the society. Financial assistance was also being provided for undertaking mini projects, based on new discoveries.

Dr. Shahid Siddiqui hoped that the participants during their working sessions will come up with innovative and creative ideas so as to provide solid support to the relevant departments and policy-makers in addressing the problems relating to climate degradation and environmental hazards like water pollution.
