LUMS holds seminar with support of Aman ki Asha
Lahore: The Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) will host a unique initiative by the World Economic Forum's Young Global Leaders (YGL) on Indo-Pak relations on Friday (July 8).

This is the first World Economic Forum's YGL event in Pakistan. Based on the premise that climate change and natural disasters pose risks to both Pakistan and India -- and are likely to grow in impact -- the initiative promotes proactive bilateral cooperation to manage risks better for mutual benefit.

Both countries are on the frontlines of climate destabilisation and highly vulnerable to impacts such as floods, droughts, sea level rise, cyclones and storm surges. Scientists warn that extreme weather events such as last year's devastating floods are expected to increase in frequency.

Combined with natural disasters, these extreme weather events could undo development gains and deal a blow to rich and poor alike in both nations affecting social cohesion and stability. Many opportunities exist for practical cooperation and the launch conference on July 8 will set in train a multi-year programme of work in both countries.

The initiative is the brainchild of Pakistani and Indian 'Young Global Leaders' (YGLs), who came together following last year's floods. They have now turned their efforts to mobilise the Swiss-based World Economic Forum (WEF) and its influential network of YGLs to exert leadership on issues of mutual concern. A follow-up is planned at the WEF's India Economic Summit in Mumbai in November 2011.

The launch event at LUMS will feature well-known personalities from the world of policy, politics, media, NGOs and academia as well as numerous practitioners and experts. The conference is being organised in partnership with the Centre for Social Markets, Aman Ki Asha and Third Pole, with support from DFID.

Students, faculty and alumni are encouraged to attend, but prior registration is mandatory. Those who will be participated are LUMS Vice Chancellor Dr Adil Najam on behalf of the World Economic Forum, Sushant Palakurthi Rao, Director, Head of Asia, Lieutenant General Nadeem Ahmad former head of the National Disaster Management Authority, Dr PG Dhar Chakrabarti, former director of Saarc Disaster Management Centre and former director of the National Institute for Disaster Management (India), Dr Saleem H Ali, professor of Environmental Planning and Asian Studies and director, Institute for Environmental Diplomacy and Security, University of Vermont, Michael Renner, Consultant, Norwegian Peace-building Resource Centre, Ali Tauqeer Sheikh, Head, LEAD Pakistan and Asia Network Director, Climate & Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), Khalid Sherdil, Director General, Provincial Disaster Management Authority, Punjab, Chandan Mitra MP (BJP), India , Manish Tiwari MP (Congress), India, Baijyanath 'Jai' Panda MP (BJD), India and others.
