Abstract:

This has now become a recognized fact that climate change is real, it is already here, it is here to stay, and humans are responsible for it. Pakistan is the 7th most effected country as far as climate change impacts (especially in the form of more frequent and more intense extreme weather events such as thunder storms, cloud bursts, large scale floods and droughts) are concerned. Currently, there is a hot debate going on country's water future which is an important determinant of the overall prosperity and sustainable development in Pakistan. Also, we are a signatory party to the landmark Paris climate agreement-2015 which entails global efforts to limit global warming below 20C. Hence, Pakistan’s climate action, as defined by the Prime Minister of Pakistan, is three pronged (with Adaptation as our priority and mitigation as our contribution in the global efforts under Paris agreement);

1. Safety and wellbeing of the people (Adaptation)
2. Climate friendly, sustainable development (Adaptation/mitigation)
3. Fulfilling our international commitments (Mitigation and reporting)

Therefore, to combat climate change in Pakistan, we need proper understanding the problem to devise locally relevant solutions and actions on ground.

Bio-note: Dr. Zia Hashmi is currently heading the Water Resources and Glaciology Section of Global Change Impact Studies Centre (GCISC). He is a skilled research engineer with a doctorate in civil engineering from the University of Auckland, New Zealand. His doctoral research focused on multi-model statistical downscaling for hydrologic impact assessment studies. He has got a strong background in water resources engineering and management with ample experience of research in hydrology in relation to climate change, working with a range of scientific disciplines. He has been collaborating in a number of joint projects at international level and so far, authored more than 10 high quality research publications

The Commission on Science and Technology for Sustainable Development in the South (COMSATS) presents its compliments and has the honour of referring to the subject cited above.
 
As you are aware, Metrology, Accreditation, Standards and Quality are important factors in the process of socio-economic development of countries. However, developing countries, especially the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) lack adequate knowledge and infrastructure in these fields. There is, therefore, an urgent need for capacity building of relevant organizations in the developing countries in order to enhance their expertise and to upgrade their infrastructure related to metrology.
 
In light of the above, COMSATS in collaboration with the TUBITAK National Metrology Institute (UME), Turkey, is organizing a Workshop on Metrology for Least Developed Countries (LDCs) on 26-27 November 2018, in Gebze Kocaeli, Turkey. The objective of the event is to enhance the knowledge-base, expertise and capacities of the institutions working in the field of metrology in the least developed countries, as well as to prepare a roadmap to uplift their metrology sectors. The brochure of the workshop is enclosed herewith for your kind perusal.
 
Availing this opportunity, it is requested that the senior scientists, experts, or policy makers in the field of Metrology may kindly be nominated to participate in the subject workshop as Resource Person/Speaker. Partial or full financial support will be provided to selected Resource Persons/Speakers.
 
It is requested that the filled-in Registration Form (attached herewith), CV, Passport Copy, and Abstract of Presentation of the nominees may kindly be sent to us by 10th October 2018.
