University of Karachi managed a short course on environmental leadership.


The short course of environmental leadership was held at Sardar Yasin Malik development institute University of Karachi by resource person and course designer, “Owais iqbal khan” who is currently visiting faculty lecturer in college of banking and finance (affiliated by University of Karachi). He is also research scholar with research publication in international impact factor journal of Taylor and Francis and is currently working on 3 other research projects.
In this course, Owais iqbal khan gave proper understanding of how the society needs to step up and come forward and become local environmental leaders to save the environment and resources misused by population, its mismanagement and striving for creating mass awareness. Forest and agriculture management was discussed as to how the agriculture degradation is affected by climate change and global warming and what are the possible means of mitigation in order to protect the future crops.
Water management was also one of the course contents and he told the participants on how the industrial waste, residential and agriculture discharges have polluted our groundwater aquifers and other major fresh water sources.
Water conservation was essential for sustainable agriculture and using of drip irrigation can save up to 90% water loss by the normal tube well system. Moving further he discussed the solid waste and hospital waste management, it’s classifications and methodologies for proper integrated sustainable waste disposal system which can not only protect public health but if performed with care can also protect resources and it’s depletion by recycling, reusing and ultimately reducing the over consumption of resources.
By not doing proper hospital waste management the human scavengers are in danger of getting infected by HIV virus by used syringes which are not properly disposed off, also Hepatitis A,B and C by such unsafe practices of dumping “special” waste. Such waste should be treated carefully by autoclaves and proper incineration should be done to items which can’t be reused.

Lastly he told the participants about the visual impact assessment which is necessary in maintaining environmental aesthetics of the city or country. A visual impact of cleanliness, nature and great green architecture enables eco-tourism and can be vital in making tourist industry boom in Pakistan which is host to number of beautiful nature of mountains as well as the historic sites of Lahore, Taxila, Mohenjo Daro, etc.
Overall the course gave comprehensive knowledge of environmental management systems of different disciples and how local and authority environmental leaders should act together in forming a greener Pakistan and sustainable tomorrow.
