Two days national conference started at AWKUM  today at Agriculture Department, Abdul Wali Khan University Mardan. The conference is organized to highlight the importance of biochar and its role in life on earth surface. On this eve of world soil day  A National Conference is organized organized at Department of Agriculture, AWKUM in collaboration with international journal of Agricultural and Environmental Research, Office of research innovation and commercialization,  and Eurasion School An International Education System. The Conference is organized on the topic of “BIOCHAR FOR CLIMATE SAMRT AGRICULTURE”. Dr. Kawsar Ali of Agriculture Department AWKUM is the chief organizer of the event. DrKhan BahadarMarwat, Dr. Muhammad Arif and Dr. Muhammad Farooq Qayom were the key note speaker. Participants from all over the country participated in the conference. DrKHurshid Khan (Vice Chancellor AWKUM) was the chief guest of the opening session.  Faculty members, students and research officer from different institution participated in the Confrence. While addressing the participants, invited speaker Prof. Dr. Khan BahadarMarwat stated“ Healthy soils are fundamental to produce clean water, preserve biodiversity, and increase resilience to the impacts of climate change, especially for poor family farmers of developing countries. This is reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals, and was highlighted during the recent UN Climate Conference in Marrakech, COP 22. The cause of soils and their protection is high on the international agenda, and calls for collaborative and coordinated efforts”.
Chief guest of the Conference DrKHurshid Khan Said “Say “climate change” and see how most people react. I find it’s a bit like “sustainable development”: a phrase at which many people quietly glaze over and switch off. So here’s the first point: Don’t switch off. Climate change isn’t just words. It is a real Thing. And man-made climate change is a very scary real thing.The rise in global temperature over the last several decades is a matter of public record. There is an overwhelming scientific consensus that it can only be explained by one thing: the rise in greenhouse gas emissions caused by human activities”
Invited Speaker DrRiaz Said “ Some people say that climate change is natural and we shouldn’t worry. The answer to that is that we have indeed had naturally-occurring climate change since the Earth was formed. But none of the natural causes of climate variation, from the Sun’s output, the tilt of the Earth, volcanic activity or emissions from rotting vegetation, can account for the warming we observe today. There is only one thing that can: the emissions from fossil fuels caused by human activities over the last two hundred years. The concentrations of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere have increased by nearly 30% since the beginning of the industrial revolution.”
Moreover, Dr Zafar Hayat Khan, Chairman Agriculture Dpt AWKUM, added “In a modern world where the population is growing, cities are expanding, the climate is changing and more food is needed, we urgently need healthy soils to ensure the essential services they provide. Sustainable management systems and practices will unlock the full potential of soils to support food production, store and supply clean water, preserve biodiversity, sequester more carbon and increase resilience to a changing climate” He briefed the researchers and faculty members of other department about the research activities so for his department has conducted for sustainable soil management. He said “Though AWKUM is newly established institution, however, we have made all possible efforts to satisfy the need of farmers and community in a very short spin of time”.
Dr. Kawsar Ali, who was the chief organizer of the seminar and alsoEdiotr-ib-Chief of International Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Research acknowledge the efforts of all faculty members of agriculture department and official partner of IJAER, The Eurasion school: International Education system. He praised the role of Eurasion School Director DrSabi Ur Rahman and declared him man of vision. While addressing the participants he said“Ladies and gentlemen, Agriculture Dpt AWKUM organized this event to discuss sustainable food systems and nutrition. One of the main conclusions is that healthy soils and healthy seeds are essential for producing healthy diets. And pulses play an important role in this equation, especially to improve the quality of soils. This is a symbiosis for life, which is the theme of our event today”.
