Governor endorsed Quetta TechnoPark and DSP Balochistan

A team of Dairy Science Park comprising Prof M Subhan Qureshi, Chief Patron DSP, University of Agriculture, Peshawar; Dr M AzamKakar, Director World Bank Quetta and MrShakoor Ahmad, Provincial Chief SMEDA (Baluchistan), called on the Governor Balochistan, Mr Muhammad Khan Achakzai, in his office. The Governor was briefed on launching of the Balochistan Chapter of Dairy Science Park, Peshawar and was invited to attend the Fourth International Conference and Industrial Exhibition of DSP at Konya, Turkey to be held on November 1-5, 2017. The Governor appreciated the mission and considered it as an important tool for the welfare of the people of Balochistan. He showed keen interest in the development activities going on in the two provinces of Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces.

The Governor advised for development of the livestock and horticultural resources of the province and predicted that Balochistan may become a regional hub for food production and trade across the food value chain. He emphasized on the need for appropriate planning and productive utilization of the resources for getting the due benefits for welfare of the people. DSP delegation informed the Governor about their efforts to establish a linkage between the academia, private sector, government departments and development organizationsunder the Dairy Science Park. The Governor especially appreciated the international linkages established under DSP and welcomed establishment of Quetta TechnoPark with Turkish collaboration. The Governor extended maximum support of the provincial and federal government for making the TechnoPark a success story in the Region.

The delegation earlier visited Balochistan Rural Support Program (BRSP), on invitation of Nadir GulBarech, CEO. The visit was facilitated by MrNaimatullah, Senior Manager and Mr Muhammad SirajulHaqGhori Program Advisor. A powerpoint presentation was displayed. The program has attracted European Union support worth US$ 26 million, which is commendable. BRSP has made its presence in 25 districts and 211 union councils of the province. BRDCEP, human and institutional development, microfinance, enterprise development, physical infrastructural and technology development, livelihood and IT programs are commendable. These programs have covered 354,000 households in the province, covering 25% of the provincial population. The progress was commended by the visiting DSP delegates, comprising Prof  M Subhan Qureshi, Dr Azam Kakar and Mr Shakoor Ahmad SMEDA.

Prof Qureshi desired that the community linkages developed by BRSP may be utilized by DSP through technology development and transfer through ORIC offices of the Universities; developing business models through SMEDA and export of Halal food through Balochistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries. BRSP would get representation in the form of a member in the Board of Governors DSP-Balochistan Chapter.

The Vice Chancellor Baluchistan University, Prof Dr Javed Iqbal was called in office. He was informed about establishment of Dairy Science Park and its mission of academia industry linkages; launching of DSP Baluchistan Chapter and establishment of Quetta TechnoPark with the Turkish Assistance during DSP 2017 at Konya, Turkey. Quetta TechnoPark would be hosted by Baluchistan University with assistant form BUITMS, SBKWU, BRSP and  SMEDA as a project of Dairy Science Park. The Vice Chancellor agreed on being part of DSP Baluchistan Chapter and TehchnoPark. He agreed on including entrepreneurship development, Quality Control and Traceability in the food value chain, through participation of ORIC/CASVAB. He wished to participate in DSP Konya and nominated Dr Waheed Noor, Dr Saadullah Jan and Dr Kaleemullah for participation in the same. He also agreed on hosting 6th DSP – 2021 at the University of Baluchistan.

A visit was made to Balochistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries, Quetta (BCCI). The members were facing big problems like transfer of money from or to Balochistan through formal channels in foreign currency. Dry and wet fruit are produced in huge quantity and their export has got a big potential in the province; however, getting an export license is almost impossible for the local traders. Sheep and goats in the province provide a big opportunity to the province to enter into international Halal meat market. Quarantine facilities need to be established at appropriate places along the boards with Iran and Afghanistan. Security issues in the region need to be handled seriously for promoting productivity through entrepreneurship development and support through quality control, processing facilities and export. Electronic Form-E/Manual Form-E is a requirement for exports taking place through One Customs, manual Form-E is being issued by Authorized Dealers at the request of exporters as per existing instructions. However, the members of BCCI/QCCI were not satisfied with the process and complained that Baluchistan has been declared red zone, regarding economic development.

It was recommended that Economic Zones may be developed in the province. Processing and cold storage/transportation facilitates may be established for food items like meat, milk, eggs, dry fruits and vegetables to support the indigenous food value chain. The rules and regulations need drastic reforms to create an enabling environment for utilizing the indigenous resources in an excellent manner.Prof Qureshi invited the members of BCCI to participate in the DSP 2017 – Turkeyand contribute in establishment of Quetta TechnoPark (QTP), to be established by the Dairy Science Park Baluchistan Chapter in collaboration with the local and international organizations, The PTFP would be able to develop entrepreneurship across food value chain for production of Halal and hygienic food for domestic market and export. The plan was endorsed by the members.

The DSP delegation visited Sardar Bahadar Khan Women University (SBKWU), Quetta, Prof Dr Rukhsana Jabeen welcomed the delegates and introduced the University, renowned for the quality of its teaching and learning, and for its commitment to engaging with society’s challenges through research and active citizenship, especially women. Prof Jabeen was enthusiastic in training the qualified women in entrepreneurship development in food value chain, especially feed production, poultry farming and fruits processing. The DSP delegates desired active participation of the ORIC office and Business Incubation Center of the University to participate in the DSP-Balochistan Chapter and Quetta TechnoPark.

BUITMS was visited by the DSP delegates, facilitated by Prof Muhammad NaeemShahwani, Director Office for Research on Innovations and Commercialization. ORIC is facilitating researchers/Engineers/Scientists for the commercialization of their research products. A discussion was held with the Dean Faculty of Life Sciences and Informatics, Prof Jamil Ahmad and faculty members. The Faculty comprises Departments of Biotechnology, Microbiology and Environmental Science. The Faculty is focusing on diversified life at chemical, molecular/cellular levels and understanding the mechanisms contributing in diversity in structures/functions of organisms.Application of the acquired knowledge of technological procedures in agriculture,health,industry & environment is another focus area of the Faculty. Prof Qureshi suggested establishment of a Department of Food Technology and Entrepreneurship to support the indigenous livestock and horticultural production regarding quality control, food processing and packaging. It was recommended that BUITMS would participate in the DSP Balochistan Chapter/Quetta TechnoPark as member Board of Governors.

A visit was made by DSP delegation to Center of Advanced Studies in Vaccinology and  Biotechnology (CASVAB), University of Baluchistan Quetta, facilitated by Dr Saadullah Jan. Prof Qureshi made a powerpoint presentation on the history, achievements and future vision of Dairy Science Park. The faculty members showed keen interest in the current challenges to livestock sector and scope for development of livestock resources with special emphasis on medium sized entrepreneurship development and establishment of corporate structures form food processing and export. Prof Qureshi endorsed the suggestion that potential areas may be identified for medium sized farming at state land and support for commercialization under the Quetta TechnoPark. The offer of CASVAB for improving quality of vaccines and its marketing at local commercial farms and export was endorsed.

Office of the provincial SMEDA was visited. Shakoor Ahmad provincial Chief arranged the meeting with cooperation of Dr Azam Kakar and both of them participated in the discussion to support development of the private sector and enable the province for competitive growth under the upcoming CPEC scenario. Prof Qureshi appreciated role of the SMEDA in supporting the local business community and desired their leading role in coordination with the academia, government and industry under the Baluchistan Chapter of Dairy Science Park.

Pakistan Television – TV Bolan arranged a one-hour discussion on the birth of the Dairy Science Park at UA Peshawar, launching of its Baluchistan Chapter, expected support to the indigenous resources of Balochistan and establishment of Quetta TechnoPark. Dr Eissa Khan, the anchorperson was keen in exploring the entrepreneurship development in food value chain and questions by rural farmers were answered by the DSP delegates.

DSP – CHINESE COLLABORATIONS UNDER CPEC

DSP – CHINESE COLLABORATIONS UNDER CPEC

A delegation of Dairy Science Park led by the Chief Patron Prof M Subhan Qureshi, discussed scientific and business collaboration with St Fulin Group Co Ltd, China during the CPEC Summit 2016 held at Pak-China Friendship Center, Islamabad.

DSP envisions to support the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), northern Pakistan (Gilgit-Baltistan), and the adjoining Chinese regions through appropriate utilization of livestock resources for generating self-employment and hygienic food production. This would require logistic support like livestock slaughtering, meat processing, cold storage, and chilled transportation to the desired destinations in the local and international market.

DSP would register the selected farmers, processors, veterinary clinics, research and diagnostic labs, and development partners for standardizing and certifying the quality of materials and services. DSP Board of the Government of KP would provide financial and regulatory support to the partner organizations and the proposed University of Veterinary Innovations and Commercialization would provide research and academic support to the project.

The Senior Minister KP, Ex-Chief Minister KP/present Minister for Housing Government of Pakistan, and the Chairman Higher Education Commission of Pakistan have endorsed DSP and ensured their support in its implementation, as reflected in the DSP Society Profile, July 2016.

We appreciate St Fulin Group to the Chief Minister KP to establish science parks and investment plans. DSP offers its collaboration with St. Fulin Group. We would like to utilize Sino Pak International Logistics Complex in Tashkurgan County as a new mode international logistics service platform. We suggest establishment of a central facility at Peshawar (KP) and regional facilities at Gilgit. We would like to launch collaborative research with our local universities with Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences as per our letter of intent (attached), signed with Prof Gang Li.

Dairy Science Park would like to link the local livestock, especially the meat farmer and processors with the Chinese companies for trade of hygienic and halal certified mutton, beef, turkeys, and rabbit meat.

Pursuant to the discussion between delegation of Dairy Science Park and  According to Daily Times, 16 September, 2016, a four-member mission of visited the Chief Minister’s office KP who referred them to Secretary Agriculture. The visiting group was disappointed with the behavior of the bureaucrats and considered the future of a potential Chinese investment worth millions of dollars in the field of Livestock and Dairy products in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as bleak after the Special Assistant to the Chief Minister recently declined the visiting Chinese investors, according to official sources.

Chinese representatives of Saint Fulin Group were said to have called on the Special Assistant for Livestock, Muhibullah Khan. However, his denial to sign the previously agreed-upon Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) withheld the deal at the eleventh hour. If signed, the agreement would have enabled the Chinese group to invest millions of dollars in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the field of Livestock and Dairy products development.

St Faulin Group spokesperson, Miss Echo, opined, “The official meeting at the Peshawar Secretariat was expected to go well as we hoped that everything was on course. However, instead of signing the MOU, the government special representative treated us in a very humiliating manner before calling the deal off.”

Interestingly, the group had managed to sign a similar MOU with the Provincial government of Punjab on Wednesday. Federal Minister for Food Security, Sikandar Hayat Bosan, was said to have signed the MOU, which would be implemented in Punjab under the supervision of Punjab Government Livestock department.

According to a source in the livestock department in Peshawar, the deal had largely failed because of vehement opposition of some bureaucrats, which included Deputy Secretary Agriculture, Shaukat Yousfzai; Additional Chief Secretary, Azam Khan and Secretary Agriculture, Jameel Ahmad. “They did not give any reason for canceling the agreement with the Chinese group against the wishes of Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervaiz Khattak,” the source further added

He also believed that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister, Pervaz Khattak, was, however, interested to avail Chinese investment for the province but the bureaucratic circles kept on declining these investment proposals every now and then.

St Faulin Group Public Relations Officer, Scarlet, noted that the officials had treated the Chinese investors in a highly impolite manner during the meeting. “The attitude of the special Assistant for Livestock was hostile with us, which greatly disappointed us as we wanted to invest in KP,” she maintained.

The group was said to have visited Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as many as three times since 2014 when the provincial government had assured them regarding the agreement. However, it was still rejected without any clear reason, she added. “Our group was interested to invest in the breeding of the different cattle like donkeys, cows etc with modern technologies but unfortunately we have decided not to bring any more projects to KP as here attitude towards foreign investors is very strange,” the official asserted.

Dairy Science Park has been trying to renew the cooperation through visit of Prof Qureshi to Xi’an, Engr Irfan to Beijing and Mr Paracha to Tashkurgan County. A letter of intent has been signed with Chinese Acadamy of Agricultural Sciences Beijing for scientific, industrial and trade collaboration.

Comments of Ex-Chief Minister KP

I am pleased to get an update on Dairy Science Park, presented to me as Livestock Development Plan during my tenure as Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The concept is commendable as it focuses on self-reliance through utilization of the livestock resources of the region and developing the export potential of these resources. The proposal has been updated to Dairy Science Park extending its activities to other organizations and linking the region with developments at ten countries, especially USA and China, in addition to the Pakistan Army.

The present Government of Pakistan has been working hard to extend development support to all regions, especially for rehabilitation of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA and would continue to support the initiatives launched by Dairy Science Park with the cooperation of national and international agencies, in larger interest of the people.

The province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has been facing numerous challenges in the recent past affecting the socio-economic status of the people. The present government has decided to take concrete steps to revive the economy, pave way for huge investment, setup strong industrial base and promote tourism and trade activities in the province under a comprehensive plan. The novel step taken by the University of Agriculture supported by the provincial government departments, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chamber of Commerce and Industry and SMEDA, is commendable. The Task Force on DSP has been an excellent model of out of box thinking. I hope that DSP will be successful in formulating a comprehensive strategy for developing the livestock resources for the welfare of people of this province. The provincial government will extend all possible support for making the Dairy Science Park a success story on the world map.

The International Workshop on Dairy Science Park 2011 is a good attempt and attracted a good number of papers, exceeding 100, from various universities and research and development organizations, out of which about 60 have been selected for oral presentation. Good livestock practices may be identified through the technical sessions for implementation by the extension department, NGOs and the farming community. The proceedings book has been produced as a beautiful document which will memorize you of this august gathering. The provincial livestock department has been helping the farming community through extension and research wings. The Directorate General of Livestock and Dairy Development (L&DD, Extension) has been engaged with various assigned tasks in discharge of its responsibility towards the development of livestock sector for the benefits of the public in general and the farming community in particular, in order to raise their income and living standard and protect them from the oonotic diseases. The efforts of the University were commended for successful conduction of this grand event. Beyond its graduate and postgraduate study programs, the faculty has been successfully conducting various training courses for the farming community, para-vets and professional staff of the department and NGOs. The feed mill and dairy technology units are success stories of the faculty which will help in improving the quality of degree programs and will encourage the local farmers and industry people for entering into the business. The Minister congratulated the Vice Chancellor, Prof Khan Bahadar Marwat, the Dean, Prof M Subhan Qureshi and faculty members for organizing this august event and attracting participation of almost all the provincial organizations in the public and private sector.

Recommendation letter of the Senior Minister GoKP

I was pleased to work with the Dairy Science Park since the last several years. The Society has emerged at the University of Agriculture, Peshawar and has abridged the gap between the government and academia in policy development and bringing reforms in the Society in line with the vision of the present government.

The concept of the Dairy Science Park is appreciated; supporting the producers and consumers of livestock products, value addition, self-employment to the youth and hygienic food production. An ongoing project of Rs.200 million is being supported under annual development program, for establishment of Slaughter Houses. Peshawar Development Authority is implementing the project and the Dairy Science Park team is assisting them in ensuring quality standards, supporting the supply line, marketing linkages, and human resource development. The provincial government has agreed on preparation of an Act for establishing an autonomous Dairy Science Park Board.

DSP activities are in line with the Integrated Development Strategy KP, 2014-2018 regarding sustainable and effective local government system, improved citizens’ participation, industrial development for economic growth, and job creation. DSP vision also covers the Federal Government’s Pakistan Vision 2025 calling for Private Sector-Led Growth and Entrepreneurship.

I am thankful to the United Nations for accepting DSP to implement sustainable development action #SDGAction9671. The provincial government would extend all possible support to achieve the goals set for brining peace and prosperity in the Region comprising KP, FATA, and Northern Areas of Pakistan and the adjoining areas of Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and China.

The development and private sector organizations within the country and abroad, are invited to participate in this sacred mission and collaborate in launching novel initiatives like alternate energy solutions, environment protection, biorisk management, entrepreneurship development, legislative and policy support, quality control, and Halal certification in the food value chain.

Endorsement of Minister for Agriculture GoKP

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Agriculture Ikramullah Khan Gandapur inaugurated the Livestock Business Facilitation Desk of the Dairy Science Park at the KP Chamber of Commerce and Industries (KPCCI), Peshawar. KPCCI chief highlighted the issues faced by the business community regarding the prevailing situation of the law and order and hurdles in exporting livestock, poultry and other perishable commodities to Afghanistan. He urged upon a strong representation of the provincial livestock sector in the upcoming export show in Dubai. Prof M Subhan Qureshi thanked the President KPCCI for providing a physical shape to the thoughts of the professors and for actively participating in the international conferences and post-conference proceedings to make the dream true. The Minister for Agriculture appreciated the progress made under the Dairy Science Park with the co-ordinated efforts of the University of Agriculture Peshawar and KP Chamber of Commerce and Industries. He realized the importance of the sector in jobs creation and food production (Business Recorder, 26-5-2014).

 

Recommendation of the Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Law GoKP

Note by Additional Chief Secretary KP

The innovative idea of the Local Government Department regarding establishment of Dairy Science Park at Peshawar could be appreciated to provide hygienic food production to the whole province. However, it is not clear that the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Dairy Science Park Board Act 2016 has been approved by the Provincial Assembly or otherwise. In addition, the detail breakup of the total cost of Halal meat shall be required from international recognized agency, which is not mentioned in the concept paper.

Having registered under Society Registration Act XXI of 1980 as Dairy Science Park (DSP), it needs clarification that how DSP, a non-profit organization will work for enhancement of the marketing of the dairy product with the support of Agriculture University Peshawar and Local Government Department or Agriculture Department.

DSP resembles in functions with Livestock Extension/Research, Agriculture Department and the Agriculture University Peshawar and their valuable input may be instrumental to avoid duplicity of functions. Business Recorder

(Muhammad Azam Khan)

 

Note by the Chairman Higher Education Commission

I am pleased to comment on the performance and future vision of Dairy Science Park, a scientific society originating at the University of Agriculture, Peshawar, to strengthen the linkages between the academia and the industry.

Consistency of DSP in arranging a biennial series of International Workshops on Dairy Science Park is commendable. Three workshops were held during November 2011, 2013, and 2015 and more will be hopefully held with the same interval. Each workshop was attended by 500+ participants, spread over three days, with Higher Education Commission as the major sponsor. The industrial exhibitions attracted participation of manufacturers, marketing companies, government, NGOs, and private sector organizations. Such events prove fruitful in motivating the students and faculty members to enhance their skills and gain confidence through interaction with senior scientists and leaders of the society. I am thankful to the provincial Senior Minister, relevant ministers, and senior executives of the KP Chamber of Commerce and Industries and SMEDA for providing patronage to these events. Mr Nasir Shah, Director QAA, HEC, represented HEC in these workshops and has been supporting other activities of DSP, for which I am thankful to him.

I appreciate the achievements made under DSP in addressing issues of the society and incorporation of needs of the farming community and the industry into the postgraduate programs. DSP has got international exposure, like the recent consultative meetings of DSP members with Sandia National Laboratories, USA at Amsterdam and Dubai on Biorisk Management. We would like to incorporate such concepts into various curricula in biological, health, and environmental sciences at national level. Collaboration of DSP with Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences and the proposal to establish DSP Board and University of Veterinary Innovations and Commercialization will hopefully help in generating self-employment, exportable surpluses, and stability in the region. HEC-KMU-UAP-DSP MoU on BRM

Note by Prof Peter Wynn

I would like to congratulate you on the wonderful leadership that the Dairy Science Park at the University of Agriculture, Peshawar has provided for the livestock industries of Khyber Pakhtumkhwa. It is well recognised that most small-holder farming operations in this region depend on their livestock as a source of meat, milk and fibre and also as a basis for the generation of income for their families. Their animals also serve as a mechanism for providing saleable assets to pay for family emergencies and celebrations.

Seldom have the staff of a university based institute been so well integrated with their activities among farming communities,  achieving great success in providing extension on animal nutrition, reproduction and health management. The frequency with which politicians rely on advice from DSP is developing policy for the management of livestock marketing and animal health services bears testimony to the pre-eminence of this organisation and its outstanding staff.

The co-hosting of their international conference at Konya in Turkey in 2017 shows clearly that DSP is truly linked with the international animal science research and development community. We look forward to the direction that this conference will provide for our world animal industries.

I feel proud of being part of the Park as a co-worker of Prof Qureshis at CSU Australia and Pak-Australia Dairy Project-ASLP, Lahore; and would love to support it further to provide better service to the people in the Region. Graham Center; The Innovator; Publications

Note by the Co-Founder DSP

It was my most memorable moment when I met Prof. Subhan Qureshi in Egypt and found him to be a truly committed scientist with a deep empathy towards the livestock and dairy farming community of the province of Pakhtunkhwa and Pakistan at large. His deep understanding of the problems and aspiration to find innovative solutions, which can attract the attention of donors and policy makers so that the needed resource base is generated to impact incomes and livelihoods of the poor dairy farmers as well as strengthen the scientific environment to benefit the students. As a development professional and institutional innovation expert, I shared my experiences and we deliberated the ideation of Dairy Science Park – an enabling platform which will bring all the stakeholders together to deliberate problems and issues and find sustainable solutions by optimizing resource use. We discussed the process out of my experience on Agri-Science Park and tried to embed the dairy and livestock sectors to it. Today I am glad that Prof. Subhan Qureshi has walked the talk by establishing DSP, which I believe is a global best practice. There isn’t a similar platform on Dairy so far that I know of.

The journey from consultation workshops, conferences, proposal preparations to institutionalization of the initiative as a full fledged platform called ‘Dairy Science Park’ is an amazing case study for development experts. It could have only happened with the zeal and commitment of Prof. Qureshi and team and the policy makers who believed and substantiated the required political will in shaping Dairy Science Park. The various training programs organized, partnership development efforts, advocacy with the Government and mapping of program streams is an achievement in itself.

If we look at research innovation and its uptake in the Information Technology and life sciences sectors, the process is pretty established and platforms are readily available for a ‘seeker’ (innovation seeker, entrepreneur, researcher etc) to look at commercialization strategies and get the required support from ‘providers’ (Universities, Research Institutions, Donors, VC/PE partners etc). The same impetus and institutional innovation is required for Agriculture and its allied sectors such as dairy, fisheries, forestry etc. Such innovations are happening across the globe in different formats with nemesis as Incubators, Platforms, Accelerators, Innovation Centers etc with a core belief of bringing the stakeholder ecosystem to come together and find solutions to issues and problems in a cohesive way. The initiative of Dairy Science Park is one such kind an early establisher of institutional innovation practice in the dairy sector, setting a learning trend for others.

I really foresee DSP adding many more verticals in the near future, covering gene pool, applied innovative collaborative research to business acceleration platform. Having benefited the province of Pakhtuns with a vibrant activity, I hope DSP will take lead in initiative a National Initiative to integrate Dairy and Allied Sectors under on single platform and then spread the best practice globally especially to Low Income Countries which are in need of such innovation learning sharing and exchange. I am confident this will happen under the leadership of Prof. Subhan Qureshi. On his behalf I invite suggestions and feedback from innovation experts and advisers to feed their wisdom to further improve the DSP. Hoping to see you all in the next International Conference on Dairy Science Park!!

(Abdul Rahman Ilyas, ICRISAT, India)

 

Foreword by the Chief Patron DSP

I remember my first consultation with Mr Abdul Rahman Ilyas during 2010 in Egypt, who suggested the name Dairy Science Park to be given for our struggle to utilize the livestock resources of the region for prosperity of the people. Interest of Sardar Mehtab Ahmad Khan Abbasi, Governor KP, during his tenure-ship as Chief Minister during 1998 motivated me to continue my struggle.

Various provincial dignitaries supported this sacred mission and Mr Inayatullah Khan took the message very seriously and pursued it through release of ADP funds and support of an autonomous DSP Board. He was especially comfortable with the idea of self-accountability through an Endowment Fund, needing no operational fund.

I am thankful to my faculty members, students, staff and the University Administration, for their constant support. Especially my children and wife had to bear the tremendous stress and financial burden during the execution process. I consider it as a sacred mission and present it as a gift before the people of the Region, especially those hit with poverty, illiteracy, and food insecurity.

I envision KP, FATA, and Northern Areas of Pakistan, and the adjoining regions of Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and China as a hub of livestock and poultry entrepreneurs backed up by quality control, R&D, and marketing support organizations, with prosperous people desired under 2030-Agenda for sustainable development of the United Nations.

CAREER HISTORY

Charles Sturt University (CSU) Australia (Current): CSU was joined as Adjunct Professor during 2010 which will continue up to 2022. I outlined some of the key factors that impact on the reproductive efficiency of the Pakistani dairy buffaloes herd. It was found that under-nutrition and nutritional imbalance through feeding high protein-low energy diets suppress ovarian cyclicity. Interestingly ovarian activity is often negatively associated with insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF1) levels since this is associated with higher milk yields. Clearly nutrient partitioning is playing a role here particularly when cows and buffalo are underfed. Interestingly, mid-chain length fatty acids (C12-C14) are more prevalent in milk from crossbred (Sahiwal-Friesian crosses) than in purebred Sahiwal milk in which shorter chain saturated fatty acids prevail. I attended joint ISNH / ISRP International Conference-2014 at Canberra and present paper on productivity and fertility of crossbred cattle in the subtropical environment of Peshawar Pakistan. Pak-Australia Dairy Project was assisted and supervised students research at Peshawar, regarding reproductive biotechnology and women in development. Australian Farming System was studied; visits were made to the farms and clinics and farmers meetings were attended at Charles Sturt University, WaggaWagga, in collaboration with Prof Peter Wynn. The main problem identified was the difficulty of farmers in getting technical and marketing services; summer stress faced by the animals; and scarcity of labors due to migration of the younger generations from rural to urban areas.

Dairy Science Park (DSP) Peshawar, (Current): DSP was established as Founder/Chief Patron during 2011 and is being supervised as President, currently. DSP was introduced as a sacred mission for welfare of people of the war-hit Region through generation of self-employment, Halal foods and biotech export surpluses. The Park has been registered as a Scientific Society with the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Pakistan; KP Chamber of Commerce and Industries; and accepted by the United Nations as #SDGAction9671 (http://dairysciencepark.org.pk/). In line with the vision of the Higher Education Commission, the business incubation concepts were integrated into postgraduate research ongoing at the Faculty, shaping up the University – Industry linkages. A biennial series of international workshops was initiated and it continued during November, 2011, 2013 and 2015, each by 450+ delegates, with 100+ technical papers and industrial exhibition. The proceedings were published online/printed and in impact factor journals. DSP I focused on post-flood revival of dairy industry, DSP II on meat potential of the region; DSP III on entrepreneurship development for the outgoing graduates and; DSP IV was held at Selcuk University Konya, Turkey during 2017, with the theme “Achieving Food Security through Entrepreneurship Development and Biorisk Management (BRM)”.

Sandia National Laboratories USA have been supporting DSP under a Biorisk Management Collaboration. Eight consultative workshops have been held in Amsterdam, Dubai, Bangkok, Phuket, Colombo, Konya, Jordan and Dubai, participated by 105 members-times of DSP for curriculum development, integration of biorisk management concept into the food value chain, training of senior faculty members and revision of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Curriculum under Pakistan Veterinary Medical Council guidelines. BRM Center was included under the FAO KP Livestock Action Plan 2019 as National Consultant.

Emerging industries in milk and meat processing and marketing have been provided technical and Quality Control certification support to relieve legal threats from the District Administration, who focus on price–capping of milk and meat rather than quality. Meat shops established on modern lines of hygiene produce quality beef; however such facilities are raided by the government agencies on the basis of higher prices. DSP facilitates inspection of such facilities provide SOPs for quality standards and issue a certificate. Similar services are being extended to private slaughter houses and meat/milk processing centers and other emerging entrepreneurs. A road map has been prepared for developing a Hygienic/Halal meat export base. The plan is aimed at introducing good practices into livestock SMEs. The plan has been supported by the provincial Agriculture Minister, Special Assistants to Chief Minister KP on Law and Livestock.

Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO)  of the United Nations (completed): FAO was assisted as National Consultant Livestock and Dairy Development, at Peshawar during June 20 to August 31. Of course, this was an exciting task for me, as I have interacted with various stakeholders across the livestock-based value chain during my 36-years regular career as a civil officer with the provincial government and as a professor/dean at the University of Agriculture Peshawar. I got a productive interaction with the private sector, policy makers and international players through academia-industries-government linkages. The dairy, mutton, poultry and fish farmers are usually landless people, living a life with little access to quality foods and education. Their income is usually very little in spite of having a huge resource-base and the food they are producing for the consumers in the form of milk, meat and eggs, is neither assured for quality parameters, nor monitored under some traceability system. They are subjected to penalty by the district administration when they sale meat and milk of pure quality at somewhat higher prices. Hence the livestock and poultry farmers are facing unbearable financial burden and most of these valuable assets are on way to total collapse. Ten public and private sector organizations are mandated for serving the Livestock Sector covering extension, research, fisheries, education, livestock markets, slaughter houses price regulation, food safety, trade and farmers welfare. However, lack of coordination and their apathy towards the farmers and processors, has left the burning issues unattended.

I tried my best to prepare KP Livestock Action Plan 2019 as a relief for the weaker stakeholders across the livestock value chain, in the public and private sectors, within a governance framework of Academia-Industry-Government-Society Nexus. An autonomous Livestock Technopark Peshawar (LTP) has been suggested to be established, initially as a Task Force through an executive order and later on through an Act of the Legislative Assembly/Ordinance of Governor; with full regulatory, administrative, financial and legislative powers to protect all the stakeholders of the livestock industry, and engage all relevant private and public sector organizations with shared authority and responsibility. At the end of the year 2021 LTP would be able to generate direct decent employment models to the tune of 18,000, each one earning about Rs. 50,000 per month and employing five more persons each. Hygienic, Halal and Organic food would be produced per annum valuing Rs. 5,098 billion. A fraction of 10% may be injected into Halal Meat and Biotech Export Market. Motivated young graduates in veterinary, engineering, medical, business and social sciences would be joining LTP for their career development and transformation of ideas into actions to serve the society. Quality conscious consumers would be having access to traceable food products in the towns. Public and private sector organizations would have access to sufficient operational funds for motivating their staff and serving people.  And this is the Beacon of Hope committed by the author through title of the Action Plan.

University of Agriculture Peshawar (Completed): Joined the University of Agriculture Peshawar during 2005 as full professor and served as Dean for two tenures. I have been working as HEC representative at PVMC and member of several professional bodies. Engaged in Teaching, Research and Industrial Linkage in animal health, reproduction, entrepreneurship and biorisk management; supervised PhD students 19, MPhil 84; subjects taught Reproductive Physiology; Livestock Industry; Stress Physiology; research projects completed 6; research publications in impact factor journals 53; books/chapters published 15, including a book on Reproductive Physiology published by Higher Education Commission of Pakistan.

Functionalized the UAP Univ Feed Mill under a lease arrangement through as private partner. Successfully introduced the feed at private dairy farmers in Peshawar and adjacent districts, competing with other feed manufacturers, based upon the best prices and quality. Initiated research on physiological base of animals’ productivity and stress physiology/animals welfare and tailored the postgraduate studies and research and development projects into these priorities. Motivated the faculty members and students for winning research grants to respond to the local problems and explore business and industrial aspects of livestock and poultry production.

The Ex-Chief Minister KP, Mr Akram Khan Durrani approved the concept of the DSP as a development plan and recommended establishment of the University of Veterinary Innovations and Commercialization with up-gradation of the existing Faculty of AHVS, UAP establishment of additional facilities like slaughter houses, livestock markets and entrepreneurship models.  The Higher Education Commission accepted the Park as a Center of Excellence. Senior Minister KP, Mr Inayatullah Khan has agreed on establishment of DSP Board, under an Act of the Provincial Assembly, comprising Quality Control Laboratory Complex, Business Incubation Center, Halal Research Center and an Endowment Fund. His proposal for establishment of Task Force for DSP was approved by the Chief Minister. The Chief Secretary KP has declared DSP as an innovative idea. The idea of Mardan TechnoPark and Quetta TechnoPark was accepted in a meeting of relevant authorities under chairmanship of Mr Arif Yousaf, Special Assistant to Chief Minister KP and Governor Balochistan. DSP IV – 2017 Konya endorsed the concept and Konya Teknokent offered cooperation through an MoU.

Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (completed): After getting DVM degree from UVAS Lahore, joined Livestock Department, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pakistan during 1983 as Veterinary Officer (Health) and continued up to 2005. I worked on semen processing, farm management, feeding and health coverage. Worked at Civil Veterinary Hospital and provided therapeutic and immunization services to the incoming animals. Worked as Senior Research Officer on Herd Health Program and registered buffalo farms for applied research and extension services; analyzed the prevailing practices of feeding, health and reproductive management, introduced good practices and organized the farmers into Sarhad Dairy Farmers Association, facilitating them for availing services of various research, development, marketing and financial institutions. Completed master and doctoral degrees and published a report on mismanaged livestock sector, loosing an export potential of US$ 20 billion at national level. The two successive Chief Ministers endorsed the Chief Minister Development Plan prepared by the author.
